I'm buying one strip soon for my 5 gallon pico because it looks easy to place under the CF hood I have now. I can make a review on it but that's in a few weeks.
My concern is, are they reef capable...

I see that now, but a little much for my taste for now, especially when I plan on upgrading soon!

If you get a larger tank, add more strips. It's so simple and doesn't require a larger an longer new fixture.
