New DIY remote LEDs

Got some led strip lights (16.4 feet, 300 LEDs) that are waterproof and remote controlled and did away with the tube lights. It has 20 colors, can switch between colors or fade, and can be dimmed at night! Love em. Have a YouTube video showing the fade settings, but here are some pix of a few fav colors, they're on the dimmest setting, they get Brightttt

If u wanna see the fade, here's the YouTube clip http://youtu.be/8eyFc7R4K3s

Looks great! Do they also turn white? I have been considering this for a low light planted tank.
