hidey ho

one a few fishy sites now.

I have two tanks, a 20g and a 30g. And this weekend I am picking up a 15g and another 30g.... They are used so I will cycle them longer than normal to try to make sure anything that might be left in them (infection wise) will die.

I'm looking for LED moon lighting projects... I want to see my glo-fish glow!

yeah I would like to make the lighting myself.

Plus I would really love to get my hands on some way to make a semi-powerfull underwater LED to place inside one of my decor projects.

I haven't farted around too much on the site here since I found it last night. But I am going to post a DIY decor item I made yesterday (waiting for silicone to cure before putting it in the tank). I posted it on aquariumcenteral.com and people gave it rave reviews... Living in an apartment I don't have a lot of room or tools for projects, but this decor item was a good idea with no tools and cost under $15 to make.

The LED light. I was half way thinking of maybe getting a small length of PVC pipe, the LED, wire, and maybe a water-proof switch. Drill a hole for the LED, seal it, attach the battery, seal an end and see if I can just screw on the other end (to be able to change battery).

Well only one LED light for inside the igloo project.

I have 3 glow-fish in the tank and would like to have enough of the blue LED light to make them glow... This tank is in my living room and was thinking I want the light to be about on par with a nightlight or a TV.
