Home Depot lights

I saw these lights at Home Depot and was wondering if anyone has used them to light their tank. They look like they would work well for my 90 gal. A little pricey but worth the cost maybe? I would think I would need at least two maybe 3 sets. Click image for larger version

Pretty sure they're $125ish bucks. For under cabinet application, pretty cool, they do like 40 color variations by remote! I was just at hd the other night sorry op! Got excited for you!

80 bucks for 9 feet. I would add it to my regular 4' dual t5 shop light for effects and as a moon light at night. I wouldn't think it would be bright enough to run alone.

Lol. That's exactly what I did. I wasn't even looking for lights but it caught my eye and I went whoooo. That's pretty cool. I bet it would look good on the tank. But before I chuck the cash down I was just looking for a bit of input on them. Thanks anyways

Thanks for the info. I will be checking it out for sure. At 30 bucks I could almost get 3 for 1.
