Fluval Chi 5Gal Light Replacement

Hi AA members. so I've had my fluval chi for some time now and while i'm waiting on the dwarf hairgrass to carpet through the walstad method, i was thinking if there's anything out there that could replace the existing light that came with the aquarium. I find the filter and light system hanging in the middle of the tank very bothersome and takes a lot of space. I would like at least medium lighting level so that i can grow other plants and at least keep my DHG happy. Obviously i need to replace the filter but that's easily solvable but the lighting is a dilemma that i'm running into. I would prefer LED but if nothing else regular bulbs would do.

I was also wondering if the light that comes with other fluval aquariums, ie SPEC or III, is clip-able onto the Chi.

I would like to keep the cost of the LED setup below $20 if possible.

Any suggestion is welcomed. DIY project is good too.
