Most LED strips are rated at 12 Volts, so not advisable to connect directly to 6S. Perhaps you can connect two in series?

You are going to need a 12v regulator. You can wire a 7812 very easily between the batteries and the LED strips.

You can also use your balance tap from your battery and get a male end and the connector or just solder the wire to the male tap. Then you can have either 3s or 4s you pick thats what I do on my 6S machines. No regulator needed with this method.
