I haven't thought of adding anything more. "Regular" led's wouldn't be bright enough, and power LEDs would need the heatsinks and another constant current source. So it isn't as easy as just plugging them into the existing circuit.
These LEDs have their peak intensity in that range already though. It's actually red that is really lacking with these LEDs. On the first page of this thread is the color spectrum.
