Lighting for a 14 biocube

I've had a 14 gal biocube running for about a year. This is a planted tank. Everything has been doing well except for the last month my plants lower parts have been dying off. I've been told to change my lights. So my question is, should I stay with the original set up 1,10000 k 24 watt, 1 blue light coralife actinic 24 watt or is there a better setup? Any help would be appreciated .

The blue actinic is more for show in a freshwater tank there more to bring out color in corals. So you could go with one 10k and on 6700k or something like that and it would be more suited to plants.
