MarineLand Contour 3g Replacement lighting?

So, my wife is enjoying a little dirted 3 gallon I put together for her work desk. However, the lights aren't very bright. You guys have any suggestions of a replacement light for this unit?

Again, it's on her work desk so anything that could clamp on would be ideal, but there might be some room behind it to set a desktop lamp.

Thanks!

(Oh, and as far as plants, I put some Val, some Anubias Nana, and a moss ball in it.)

Your plants may not need much more than that. There are quite a few clip-on lights that would work well for that tank. You might want to take a look at the Finnex and Beamswork offerings. Even a clip-on desk lamp with a bulb offering good color temperature (around 6500K) would be great for that tank.
