This is not concerning the LED's, but is that an airstone in there? Reason I'm asking is a couple of weeks ago a couple of people here told me not to use airstones because is not good for the live rock. Can't remember the real reason though...

By the way, your tank looks awesome man

Thats an old pic. Thats just after my cycle a couple months ago.

I took the airstone out, I guess I should take an updated pic later.

LEDs would look great in your tank. 5 might be really bright though. I have (2) 1 watt Coralife LED lights, and they're really bright at night. Almost too bright...

I have 4 in my 55 and it is bright!! I'm surprised the fish are still able to 'sleep'. 8O

I have 24 in mine. Did you wire them yourself? If so you need a resistor on them or they will not last long. That may be why yours are so bright

Check these LED lights out.... Top of the line great quality and very easy to hook up.

http://autolumination.com/fixtures.htm

scroll down the page. Guys in the club I belong to have used these for a while now with no issues. I have 5 of the triple lights on my 125 and the light is just right.
I would think that one of the triple would work on your tank.
If you have a old transformer laying around from like a cordless phone that will work to power these up.
I just picked up 5 more and I will be putting 3 on my 55 and 1 on the 20 gal fuge.
