Yes, I bought a moonlight led strip for the night. It was like 20$ on eBay including shipping.
I wove it into eggcrate because the led was too small to tape it onto.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
you can dim them. I would hang them about 6" above the water, and start them at about half way or perhaps even a little less.
