What is the best ratio regards blue white red and green . To someone new to planted aquariums it's all a bit confusing , especially when you look at the price differences from cheap to expensive , although I guess that's down to led and builb quality .
I currently have a marine led that has six white , 9 blue , one red and one green . Could I use this ? I can change each colour from 0-99 % strength wise .
Would a cheap unit from all pond solutions work ?
Do I sound like I am not sure what to do ? Yep I am confused ;/

You can ise it just lower the blue light as it is not really visual appealing for planted tanks.. but i also have a bit simmilar layout in my aquamedic spots and they are made for planted tanks..

Adjust the light so it’s visually appealing to you and the plants will grow fine. U will find you don’t need much blue with cool white. If you had warm whites you could use more of your blue to balance the colour
