Adding pink 5mm LED to Fritzing diagram? Answered

Trying to make a diagram of my circuit I made for a Star wars model using Fritzing, but I can't figure out how to add a pink LED.

Pink LEDs are (I think) nothing more than blue LEDs with a red phosphor. Electrically they can be modeled as blue or white LEDs, since those are all, at their core, just blue LEDs. Violet or UV LEDs actually are different though, as they output a shorter wavelength, closer to 400nm or shorter. They also need slightly more voltage.
