Help with picking new aquarium lights for 3gal and 5gal

EmmaTheCreeper

Hello! I have a 3gal and 5 gal both planted and in need of new lights. So far the lights they have (1.5w with 3led light, and 2.5w with 6led light). The plants are growing pretty slowly but still doing well. The plants I have in there are pretty low tech. (Although I just added a rosette sword to the 3gal but can change it to my higher light tank if need be).

I wasn’t quite sure what lights to get them. I wanted to get a clip on for me 3 gal and a suction one for the 5. Am so lost in it all with watts and different coloured lights then lumens but some of the lights don’t say lumens.
So far I think I’ve found 2 possible ones.
this for the 3 gal:

And this for the 5:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L2XTJR...abc_92X0CVG3A7MHQMB16YF7?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

But not sure if these would be strong enough. Aiming to spend around 10-15$ per light so can’t go too crazy with price. Would these be ok? Is there anything else you would recommend?

I think they will be an upgrade visually by providing a wider light spread over the tanks, but I have no experience with this type of light.

Hygger has a 6w submersable light that gives you more control over the light than the NICREW you linked to. $16 Amazon
