upgraded my tank light - lol

So I changed around my 5 gallon tank and decided I wanted to upgrade the light. Ive actually wanted to for a while but could never find anything decent and cheap not that the other half liked more than the light that came with the tank.
I came up with this idea using some old LED lights that came with the cheap black plastic lid that came with my 29 gallon.
The only thing that stinks is they dont of course have a blue light, which I barely use anyway.

Thanks I should have taken a before pic. It was just a generic bar with like 6 small LEDs in it.
