JBJ next-gen nanocube: supplemental lighting

1066 3
I recently obtained a 12-gallon next-gen JBJ nanocube with 8 Cree LED bulbs (5 blue and 3 white) integrated into the hood, which I've been finding to be a little too blue and low-intensity for my taste.

Has anyone owning one of these swapped out or (for instance, with flexible LED strips) supplemented the stock fixture without forsaking the hood altogether?

You can swap out the LEDs if you know how to reflow solder. Otherwise, you can remove the whole pcb that the LEDs are on and buy LEDs premounted on stars and attach it to the heatsink and wire them up to the existing drivers. Ultimately the drivers will determine how many LEDs you can run.
