I just realized something... I am going to make a custom hood for the 45 gallon, but should I put some type of protection or cover under the lights (the 24" fluorescent, and the blue cold cathode)?? Or can they withstand some of the water vapors?

(adding to above question) also for the moonlights... should I not get a 12v adapter for the inverter? like should I get a lower voltage adadpter.. will this dim the cold cathode? did dimming (lowering the voltage) on the blue cathodes work?

okay I know I have many questions.. and here is another one :P I got the sunbeam cathode light.. in wiring terms.. does yellow mean positive and black mean negative? I want to cut the wires from the power supply source.. and attach the adapter wires instead. thanks

Here are some pics of the prototype i put together. The 5 mm led claim 3000mcd while the 10mm claim 6000mcd yet the 5 seem much brighter. these can be purchased from www.bgmicro.com

last few
so in conclusion i would go with the 5 mm since they seem brighter and have a greater dispersion. if you have any questions just reply here or pm me. very easy to make.
