Actinic to LED in a Biocube-29 gallon.
 
Once my Marineland LED lights arrived yesterday my wife frantically started moving coral from her Biocube into my 36 gallon bow front. I bought a Marineland blue submersible strip today (6 LEDs) that has her pacified for the moment

What other types of submersible LEDs are out there that work well? I want to equip her with white ones that I can attach to the top w/out doing the full modification. This tank is temporary en route to a much larger one.

I would be very careful using those LEDS for any coral, corals need a certain amount of light to photosynthesis and they may not be powerful enough.

How long until you get the larger tank? If it is going to be some time, they would be better off staying in the biocube which has lights designed to keep corals.
