Looks cool, except that is a TON of LED's. You could light your bedroom with that thing.

I run between 1 and 3 blue LEDs on my tanks for moonlighting.

I assume these are just lights to provide light, plants would still need another light source for their growth right?

Also, can LED be left on during the time the regular lights are not on?

Reason why I ask, my one tank seems to act as a night light to the other people in the house

If you're looking to use LEDs as main lighting for a planted tank, check this out:
