Thanks smitty- I was so excited with the final product. Sometimes I amaze myself- lol. But I did sumthing wrong. I forgot my custome made hood was very high (so the lights wouldnt "burn" anything in the tank or blind the fishes or even raise the temperature) and the reflection in the water is a lil dim. But nothing that cant be fixed, I'll just find some metal sumthing and do... sumthing.

What u need for this is patience, creativity, faith, an adapter up to 12V, LEDs (most of them are 3.3 and 20 ma- ull need these numbers to know what ohm ull need the resistors to be), a pack of resistors, leds holders, solder or just tape, tape, and more tape, copper wire. Ull get most of these stuff at Radioshak. I only spent $21 bucks. UV LEDs were $2 pack of two, the blue ones were $5 each one, the resistors were $3 pack of five and holders $3 pack of two.
For any questions on how to set this up, feel free to ask.
By the way- u might also need strong teeth and fingers...
