is 6 Watt LED enough for 5 Gallon Tank?

I'm a newbie in owned an aquarium..
so I bought Led strips which have 3 colour Led each..
I got 3 Strips SMD 5050 LED Strip

Each Strips have 12 Lamp (RGB)/2 Watt

so in conclusion I use 6 Watt LED for aquarium
but I'm wondering is it Enough for PLanted Tanks?
I have Anubias, Marimo, Farnwort, and Jungle Vall inside..
Do I need to change/adding another LED?

thank you so much before..

you seem to have low light plants. I'm not familiar with LEDs. but you need to look into the correct color temperature (6500k+). I would say your lighting is far from optimum, but your plants should survive.
