Total newbie

Hi all, I recently purchased a five gallon panaview that has white and blue LEDs. I have a few plants but they are not thriving. I know it's probably because the LEDs aren't enough light but I don't know how to upgrade the LEDs. I also have a betta, a few neon tetras, a Cory cat and a snail that must have hitched a ride on a plant. If anyone can help me figure out my lighting situation I would love to be able to fix it before my dwarf baby tears die!!!!

unfortunately the LEDs aren't going to cut it. Dwarf baby tears are a high light plant. They'll need strong T5 bulbs and plenty of CO2 and fertilizer. If this is your first go with plants, I would recommend some low light crypts, anacharis, and some anubias.
