Does anyone have experience using adhesive flexible LED strips? Are there particular brands/models that are better for growing plants? I have seen a few advertised as grow lights that only have the red and blue spectrum, but I was hoping for more natural look; ideally like daylight.
I plan on using it to add some modified lighting to my Fluval Chi. For those of you who aren't familiar with the unit, it has a terrible little dim cluster of LEDs that only light a small portion of the middle of the tank. I don't want to ditch the box because I'm growing some Creeping Jenny and Wandering Jew in it, so I was planning on using the strip LEDs to make a DIY lighted trim addition.
I've seen that these strips commonly come in rolls. Can you trim them to the length you need, or are you stuck with the whole roll? I probably only need about 2-3 feet for my project.

Please excuse the cloudy water. I just planted it today and the substrate needs to settle a bit. I plan on adding some additional plants in the the back left behind the driftwood. I was thinking maybe one of the shorter corkscrew varieties of Vallisneria or something similar
. Constructive criticism and suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks in advance for your help!
