Aqueon 1 gallon mini bow lighting options

I just bought this for my son and I'm not pleased with the lighting. It comes with a 7w incandescent bulb. I would like to DIY upgrade to LEDs or something that will better serve plants. Anyone have suggestions please let me know. Thank you.

You can find some medium power led lights that should fit in the socket if you don't wanna DIY too much..

Purchased a Phillips .6w bulb cause that's all they had. Basically it's the same. Back to the drawing board. I'll have to search ebay for something. I'll keep you posted

Did a search and found Sylvania makes a 1W 6500K. Looks like Lowes has that. I'll let you know how that works out.

I wonder if this bulb will work for low light. Maybe this will work for higher light. Here's more bulbs to choose from at Superbrightleds.

No luck at my local Lowes. I was hoping to just pick it up somewhere and not have to order it and wait.
