LED lights for plants?

I just bought a 13gallon show tank. And i love it. But I've been reading the LED lights that come with it aren't good for plants. I have all low light plays in the tank. But i don't want them to die. Any suggestions on plant leds i can glue on my hood to replace The ones The tank came with?

A combination of blue, red, and white LED's work great for plant growth. I think I remember the blue lights stimulate growth at the root bed in particular. The red helps with something specific too. Anyway, the combination of the three is great for plants.

I use a Finnex Stingray LED light for my planted tank. I believe it has an installation option for mounting it inside a hood.
