    I see various strips, can't read specifications that clearly. How many watts is each LED rated for, what type are they? 12000k is a pretty standard down the line colour, but remember you will probably like the higher kelvins as well (like 20000K, royal blues and blues) so that you can play around with how your corals look at various parts of the day (evening, sunrise).

    I would not persue these led's.
    IMO, they are massivly underpowered.


    These kind of led's are best suited for mood lighting or undercounter lighting.
