I have seen how bright they are on the LFS
tanks, but that is a whole different situation! I'm pretty sure they will rock the tank. Granted I may have to invest in a good set of welding goggles to look at the tank!
This is how I am going to set it up...tell me what you think.
its a 175 bow. I am going to take the canopy and trace the outline onto a piece of 1/2 ply (maybe 3/4 inch). That way I have the "footprint." then I am going to fit it with a lip to rest on and trim the sides w/ birch veneer. Basically what I'm doing is building a cap to go on the cap! Then I will paint it black to match.
This will allow me to retro all of my lights (including 2 vho
actinics), and two exhaust fans into the top and still have it look "stock." Its vented on the back and will have two exhaust fans...should work like a charm. I can put a door on the front on hinges for access and handles on each end (top) so I cant just lift it off. I can wait to start the project!
