I'm using LED strips intended for use with cars, I just made sure they were listed as waterproof. So you definitely don't have to go with strips marketed for aquariums.

I'm also doing the same method. I thought 2 LED strips from amazon last week at $6.45 with free shipping. They should be arriving this week and I'll get it set up and have pictures
