How long have the plants been in your tank? All new plants go through some sort of transition when put in any aquarium whether it be drastic or unnoticeable. It looks like some sort of Alternanthera species being that's it's dominately red/pink under the leaves and it is just transitioning to your tank and its conditions. I'd trim the big leaves off, they are just dying anyways and keeping that energy away from new growth that would benefit from it, and let it go for a week or so and see how it grows from here.

And no, the red and blue barely produce enough par to keep even the lowest of low- light plants alive (besides algae) so it really should have no bad effects on growth.

If you find you have too much light, just dim the MAX settings down accordingly (color and intensity) with the remote. You can not dim 24/7 mode.
