Question Looking for lights

Hey Ya'll,

Setting up a 7.5 gal 13x12x12 tank, and I want to grow a nice carpeting plant. I'm having a hard time figuring out what lighting I should go with. I want to stay under $150, but lower would be better, mostly looking at LED, and at pendant or similar styles that will be mounted/hang off the back. I was looking at the Kessil A80 Tuna sun, and the Fluval Aura High Output, but am at a loss to determine if either would be a good option. I would very much appreciate any tips or suggestions!

Well I'm not sure how the tuna sun is but I have the normal kessil for my reef tank and it's great can never go wrong with kessil just a bit pricey.. I just picked this light up for my 10g seems pretty good
