lighting for a ten gallon

would a T8 Daylight Full Spectrum Fluorescent lamp be medium light for a ten gallon? it is 18 inches long, 15 watts, and 8,000 K. im also going by kelvin, not watts per gallon

I would say it would be medium to high depending on how the tank was planted. 7000 K is recommended for most planted tanks and would be considered medium lighting.
