Too bright for sw moon lights?

I found these on eBay, and they are cheap. I want moon lights for my 10 gal nano tank. They are 24 blue leds. Roughly 9 inches long. Thanks for ur input!

24 moonlights might be bright but it also depends on the watts. I have 8 LED's on my tank and it's very very dim almost dark.

This one is from the bottom looking up its also only one side. I couldn't get the whole tank in there. But you get the point.

That's my fresh water. Here's my salt water so maybe not too bright. I dunno if there is a difference between the SW and FW but you can see the difference for yourself.

I am sure it won't mess with the fish the lights seem to be a lower than 3 watt led. If you decide to get them let us know how you like them.
