What's the difference between the two and which should I go with for an aquarium?
You can try the SMD strips , it's usually called Flexible LED strips
RGB = multiple colors. If you want it to be color changing then u need RGB strips and there should come with a remote controller., otherwise single color strip is fine but then your tank will always only stay in one single color. so it depends on you.
and then you can also decide if it needs to be waterproof.
I have posted the link above , they have a learning center about the strips and installation and things like that. sorry if i'm not good at explaining
