ok thank you. Also I want to get a rubber lip pleco and I have green algae on my ornaments but the pet store said I need it on the glass for the pleco or it won't live long. Is this true? Ty. also do you know anything about amazon swords if those are easy to do?

As I mentioned in your other thread, the correlated color temperature value (the "kelvin rating") is almost meaningless if used for anything other than guessing what color the emitted light should look to most eyes, and even then, the bulb you have is an exception.

You are likely to encounter far more problems from only having 15W over 29 gallon than you're likely to encounter because of what color the manufacturer claims the light will look to humans.

that's what came with my tank. Will I need fertilizer? also what plants would be good that are easy to care for with little or no sun possibly.

Your "nana anubias, Jeva Fern, Java Moss and other anubias types. There are more low level light plants...these seem to be the most popular. Not much fert needed.
Also you might want to research a floating plant or 2 to up near your light.
