Question Fluval Edge LED lighting?

I've read a few threads on various forums where people have done this mod. However, I haven't see anyone link exactly what LEDs they bought. I'd be looking to put white LEDs in mine.

I want something that is a direct bolt-in. Don't want to be doing a huge custom wiring/power job.

What should I buy?

will this be a fresh water tank? live plants?
just fish?
salt water with photosynthetic creatures?

are you looking to just plug them right into the existing sockets?

check out this thread...maybe some ideas here-

This is what I got:
Amazon.com: Brightest MR11 12 Volt AC DC 10 5050 SMD LED Bulb Wide Angle 160 Lumen 2.1 Watt, white, 1113WH: Kitchen & Dining

I just bought them for looks and efficiency. I don't have live plants, or intentions of getting them.
They plug right into the existing socket.
