For one amazon sword, the stock lights should be perfectly fine. You won't want too much light on it because swords can grow over a foot tall (about 2 feet I believe). As long as it stays alive, you are fine. As for the dead leaf just pull it out. You can clip it off with scissors or fingernails. I would only bother upgrading the light if the sword starts dying or you add a ton of plants.
As for the goldfish in the 3-gallon, I would advise upgrading since goldfish need at least 10 gallons when they are young (30+ is recommended). Your sponge filter from the betta cup is very innovative, though, it's not something I have seen before. Good job on that.

I'm curious.

Since you don't seem to value anyone else's opinions, suggestions, or experience, why do you ask for advice?
