Hey guys, thinking about making a few mods to my Eclipse 3 System hood on my 29 gallon aquarium.
They'd be some fairly small mods, and would barely cost anything at all, but could give me a little extra kick in my aquarium. First of all, right now I have gravel in there, and I think I'm going to switch it over to sand, which will be tricky considering all the fish in there.
But that's neither here nor there, here's what I'm thinking of doing...
-I want to cut a part off of the filter tube making the filter's hose shorter and allowing me more room for rocks in that area
-I want to make it reflective behind the lights making the aquarium brighter
-I want to find a way to add moon lights
I may not go through with the moon lights, but if I could find something that would reflect the lights back forward that might be really good for getting more light into my aquarium. Not that my aquarium is too dark, but I would like more light, who wouldn't? That one does scare me a bit, though. I don't want anything to overheat or anything in there...
The moonlights probably wouldn't be too hard, I think I would put them on the other flap that covers the hood, not the one with the lights on it, and I'd just hid a switch in the back. But what do you guys think? Would these create any risk in my aquarium?
