Is this too much light? Too little?

I have a 37 gallon tank that I'm getting ready to set up, building a hood/canopy and I need to find adequate lighting for amazon swords, wisteria, moss, etc; but I don't want to blind my fish...

That's a White 225 LED 13.8 watt grow light. It's 12x12, which is perfect for my 12" wide tank. Tank is 30" L x 12" W x 22" H.

I can fit 2 over the tank, with room between for a moon light.

Is one too little/much? Would two be overkill? Is it in the correct spectrum for plants?

With LEDs, there really isn't such a thing as too much light for plants. It just depends on how bright you want it. They tend to be much dimmer than regular lights so I would try your idea first. If it is too bright, you can always return one.
