I have an 850 Ltr sump filtered discus tank that I want to shut down and convert to soil based natural planted. Would sump filtration be an issue for this?

Yes, I think completely natural and on a bit of a budget. I have a Fluval LED strip over the tank but it's not enough, so I'm going to buy 2 x 20w LED floodlights and try and build the lot into a ceiling hanger over the tank.

Nice those flood lights actually work quite well. You just don’t want to flood the tank too much with light as it will induce algae without enough plants and CO2 injection.
