I just bought this the other day to upgrade the lighting on one of these. I was too lazy to get the strips you have to cut, though I'm not sure these LEDs are 6500k.

I did get a http://www.creativelightings.com/Sam...frs-sample.htm to light a bubble gum machine that I'm turning into a small planted tank. Can't wait to get that project finished!

I blame spelling mistakes on my iPad. You should too!

What you bought is almost like the pods of LEDs on infinite Glory's tank and my tank.

Yes, but mine don't need to be cut! They can just be stuck on and attached to a power supply (which I already have).

I mean the factory set ups. I really like the option of being able to select the length with the strips

Yeah, same here ... but these were cheap and my time is limited. Also, I checked, and they are the right color temp! Stoked, they should be here tomorrow.

Yes, but I have two full-time jobs, two kids, a wife, and full-time school. I'm crazy to even have a hobby to start with, lol!
