Photo #1 - I Drilled A Hole In The Side Of The Hood And Ran ...

Submitted By: Noah on
Photo Caption: I drilled a hole in the side of the hood and ran a blue LED rope light all the way around the inside to create a nightlight. I tried the commercial fish tank night lights, but to light up such a large tank with enough light to make a difference would cost a fortune. This was a ten dollar project.

About Yourself: This is my second fish tank. The first was an ill-kept 10 gallon I had in college. I learned so much from my mistakes with the first one that this one has been nothing but a joy to keep so far. I really do treat it like a hobby so I expect to be constantly working on my tank trying to make it better.
