Any recommendations for a blue-white light?

Hey :)

Question about lighting. I am currently using a cheap ($12) under the cabinet LED light on my biggest tank. It illuminates the aquarium fine, but it been looking terrible. The wooden lid of my aquarium is a yellow wood, and the warm white from the LED reflects off if making it look horribly yellow like an aged photo. My 10g has an LED hood and it looks nice and blue. Here’s a comparison.

Are there any cheap solutions to get a bluer LED light for my tank? As of now, the light makes everything look trashy, so I’d like an upgrade.

This isn’t a light suggestion but could the inside of the lid be painted with a white aquarium safe paint? Plasti-dip? That way the lights would be reflecting off of that and cast a light truer to what they are versus the yellow.

Could work, but I sort of want to get a new light anyway. Thanks anyhow!

Realized I had a $20 gift card for amazon someone gave me a while back. Used it to buy this light! Thanks for the suggestion! I'll post a picture when I get it up and running.

The light is pretty decent. I have it in one of my shrimp tanks, and the plants are thriving. Im not using CO 2, and almost never dose liquid ferts.

Maybe some more vals, or a sword would look good

I was definitely thinking val. I want the whole left corner to be full of val!! I think it’ll make the cherry barbs look more red.
