Hey Kcress, thank you for responding. Work for main tank? Work for sump? I had no idea they are old LEDs have been out of the hobby for many years. Just putting my set up together one piece at a time. So when I came across this I thought I would ask. I know I would get the right info from somebody.

Yes it would work. I'm not so sure it would work for SPS. It would be best to know what color spectrum the white is. I suspect it's probably warm white. You have to be careful that it might grow algae but if it's dirt cheap might be worth trying. Good quality old LEDs work just fine, they're just not as bright. What is the wattage of that fixture?
 
Power Supply AC80-265V 13W......found this but nothing about wattage. It's only $37 so I think I will order two and see what they are like.
 
Not growing anything yet. Trying to put together a new set up and found the LEDs. Got a 110gal tank for $48 and a sump for $25. Now the LEDs for $37 each. I will order the lights today. Let's hope for the best.

5 mm LEDs will not penetrate into the water very far. Might work for a fish only tank, but unlikely to sustain much in the way of coral. By the numbers you provided for the power supply, I suspect it's 13 watts, which is not a lot of power.
