If it were me I would get a Hood that can house a descent bulb. I would stay away from LED's on a tank so small because if you were to get one that would do any good for plants your looking to spend over a Hundred bucks (USD). I recently made a switch from the Standard Kit LED's to a 48" Dual T5 setup and the plants are going nuts right now with so much growth. If you wanted to save a few bucks, I believe Big Box stores and possibly LFS's sell Plant bulbs that you can put into regular fixtures or even cheap clamp on fixtures from say Wal-mart...

On another note, The root tabs you're using IMO work great. I use them as well. I would also try what Byron suggested. You'll be amazed what the plants will do with that stuff and some good lighting.
