2.5 gallon lighting

I took some plants out of my 10 gallon today and put them into my 2.5 gallon during a water change today. My current lighting is an LED desk lamp. I just have anubias nana and some water wisteria. Is this going to be adequate lighting or will I need to get a different lamp or something?

I just got a set of battery operated led lights that are the size of hockey pucks that are supposed to go under a cabinet to light the counter top, but one is the perfect size to just sit on the lid of my tank. The lid of my tank isn't suited to have a light in it.

Two of my three fish go a little bananas and flare a bit with it on, the third is cool with it. I don't leave the light on very long, maybe an hour at a time a few times a day.

One last question.....if I got a moss ball to throw in there too would the light be ok for that as well?
