Coralife Aqualight Compact Fluorescent Lights and Moonlights

I just picked up a Coralife Aqualight Compact Fluorescent Light for my 55 gallon. It's the 260 watt 4 bulb version. I would love to add some moonlights in it. Has anyone does this? I looked in the DIY section but I don't have a hood to put them into . My tank has a glass top... Did anyoen expoy or hot glue the bulbs to the back of the light? Will they reflect off the glass too much?

Thanks
Rich

Hi,

If you're interested in being challenged a bit - take a look at yaksplat's post on the DIY forum named "5 LED moonligh"

If you buy the supplies from the right place you can build one of these with as many LED's as you want for under $10. Also you can enclose the LED's in just about anything you want as well. They can be glued into a small piece of sheet plastic and could easily just sit on top of the Aquarium covers as the sheet would be very light.

HTH

Okay here you go. This works just fine. Buy up some of the CSL moonlights (or anything similar in size) and just set them on the protective lens in your Coralife and run the cords down the backside (cool side) and out of a little notch you cut in the plastic where the lens slides into the fixture. VWALA! Oh yea, as far as placement of the lights, place them under the bulb connectors and in the center where there is a large gap. Just use velcrow or zipties.
