Is this a dumb idea??

I've read adding led lights to your current lights (my case T5 HO) will make the colors pop more..... I was just looking on ebay and wondering if this type of strip would work?

If you're just wanting more aesthetics for the corals, just look into LED strips for cars and stuff as long as they're waterproof.

For actual actinic etc., I'm not sure if they'd work

Well then that product looks just fine!

and like what was said above, ATI makes some of the best T5 bulbs, as well as Giessman
