java moss would probably survive.

hairgrass would likely die.

I doubt either would "grow", and the Moss might not even survive.

We're talking 0.26 wpg, which is...not even considered low light.

The moss would probably need closer 1 wpg before it'd actually thrive, but then again, I've heard stories of people having Java Moss grow in a bucket in their basement with only ambient ceiling lighting Razz

The hair grass is going to need in the range of 2.5-3.0 wpg on your tank to GROW. The Java Moss might survive and might even grow albeit very, very slowly.

how do you see your fish in that tank? are you sure you didn't mean 75 litres. 20 watts is only a 24" NO bulb IIRC. did you buy this tank and lighting seperate?

yes the tank is 75gallons but I didn't have enough money so what the heck it covers half the tank oh and if I did get light for half the tank would the moss grow in half the tank (that was good enough for it)? I don't really get that plant thing Confused

personally id just save money and upgrade the lighting to around 1.5 wpg but java moss is pretty hardy it could work out.
