The site that seaham mentioned has the LEDs for about $5 each, and transformers for around $8. I have two in my 30 gal, wish I had gotten three. 1 every foot of length is not unreasonable. You can dim them by adding a resistor, if you think they're too bright.

I was going to start a topic on this when i got my pictures developed but I guess no need to wait. I thought they looked really nice so about a week ago i was looking at them at lfs and they wanted $25 for a single one. I drove a block up to the mall and went to Radio Shack. I got 4 leds for $4.29 each. 4 led holders ($1.69 for pack of 2). I old cell phone charger (free!!) *obviously make sure it the output matches the leds you buy*. 12volt switch (free!!,,had one left over from installing hide-a-way strobe lights in truck). Approx $20 total!!! I opened up the All-Glass Aquarium 48" dual tube and drilled 4 holes from the back side of the reflector. Ran the wires from the led to the switch mounted on the front of the case. Drilled a hole next to the stock power cord to run the cord from the old cell phone charger in. Took me an afternoon but the best part is the stock look. Nothing clamped on or sticking out. All running from one power supply. I will post the pics whenever I finally finish the roll of film.

These moon lights have no negative affects on any of the fish or coral?
