Yes it is although I do have a canopy which I rarely put over the aquarium.

What type of lights are you considering?

There many "different flavors" of those.

The following may give you "some ideas" as to the available lighting alternates.

My aquarium came with VHO "built into the canopy" but the ballast became "so hot" that Tenecor (the manufacturer of my aquarium) recommended that I place the ballast under the tank in "the sump area". Within a month the ballast was "crispy critter".

I now 2 of these with three white lights and one blue light:

Many members of the forum have experience with planted tanks.

If you could post more detailed information about your tank, it's "particulars" and your goal we may be able to save you some "money and grief"!
