Light for a 5g Marineland Eclipse tank

Anyone have a good recommendation for a light for this tank? It comes with a LED setup but with four plants in there plus my Marimo ball, that is not the right light for them. I have a Java Fern, Anubias, Dwarf Sagittaria Sublat and a Sword plant. Thanks in advance!

I had the same issue as you with my 5. Had two java ferns and a Java moss ball and the LED lighting that came with the tank was not gonna cut it.

I ended up purchasing this....they have these at Walmart as well, possibly cheaper. I replaced the bulb tube with a 6400 or 6500k rated 8 watt tube and all my plants flourished. The low wattage is nice as it won't heat the water in the tank.
