Question Light for my Mr. Aqua 3g Bowfront 11.8" Width?

Will a 12" ray2 provide enough light for most plants that I could put in my 11.8" 3g pico? Currently I'm using an 18" single strip fluorescent of flora sun and it's REALLY bright and my plants are thriving, but it's not my light and when I bring my tank home from aquaculture class I'll need my own fixture. I have an azoo led clamp that was great for when it was saltwater, but with the black substrate now in the planted it was like a black hole with some blue light, so I put the flora sun on instead. I was also looking at this UP Aqua UA-F17 6.69 Inch Flexible LED. Will that one be enough light for most medium light plants? Maybe high?

Any other LED suggestions? What light?? Oh and a lot of people rave about the 12" ray2, but where can I buy it? I can't find it anywhere!!

have a look on evil bay and type in Insta clamp on light... ive heard good reviews on them and they are very affordable.
