I ran across these at a local salvage store.

http://www.gogreensolar.com/products/sunshine-systems-glowpanel-45

I was wondering if they can be used on a planted tank.

Here are some specs:

LED - 225 total - 165 x Red and 60 x Blue
Power - 14W
Blue - 450-470nm / Red - 630-660nm
Voltage - 110v US or 220v European
Operating Temperature: -29F~ +113F / -34C~ +45C
Dimentions - 12.25" x 12.25" x 1.2"

Thank you, in advance. I am still trying to understand all the led specs.

Just about any lighting in the right spectrum can be used. Some are less practical than others, but they all are applicable. Sounds like all you have to do is figure a way to rig it.

Of course than can because they emit red and blue light. But your tank will lack all visual esthetics. In other words or photos in the case, your tank will look like this

instead of like this

Thanks. They come with hanging hardware and the power source.
I have an 8' tank. I was thinking about alternating 2 or these with 2 6500K spotlights. Do you think it would blend very well? Or just look like different color patches? How deep of a tank could these be used with?
