Fluval Compact Lamp on Spec 3?

What range (low,medium, etc) of plants could I grow in my Fluval Spec 3 (2.6g) with the Fluval Power Compact Lamp?

you are high range with the size of your tank.you may want to consider floating plants to shade the tank, if you do not want to use co2.what are the fluvals measurements?

I've got one on my spec 2, I like it a lot. I have a pretty low tech setup on that tank, didn't want anything with too much upkeep as its at work. I have some crypts, dwarf subulata, and a little ludwigia 'broadleaf' repens in the tank.
