Need lighting for a MINI-S/MINI-M

Hi guys,

First time doing a nano. What lighting can I get for a MINI-S/MINI-M (Approximately 5.5 gallon for those not familiar with ADA dimensions)?

I will have non co2 and low-light plants (moss/anubias).

The Flexi Mini LED is appealing but any other lower cost options?

Thanks

Might I suggest one of these? It's not a whole lot cheaper, but it's a fantastic light. http://www.amazon.com/Aquatop-Type-P-Light-Planted-Tanks/dp/B0097C6LQO/ref=sr_1_1?s=pet-supplies&ie=UTF8&qid=1425783893&sr=1-1&keywords=type-p. I run one on my 5g Chi, but it might be a little higher light than you were looking for. Otherwise, I 2nd the Finnex FugeRay Planted +R. Another great light. It's a little on the higher side in terms of output on my 3g picotope, but on a 5g I think it would be great.
