I've tried previous versions of night / moon lighting in the tank, but none were up to the task:
Moonlight v1 - waterproofed high power LED's attached to the side of the tank - these gave pretty good lighting but there were too many pools of light in the tank, and also the number of wires was pretty unsightly.
Moonlight v2 - Cold cathode lighting (from a PC mod kit) , however as Ive got a large tank (180ltr) and I needed to extend the wires from the cathode tubes to the inverter - however when I did this I found that they no longer worked anywhere near as well (it seems this is a known issue with cathode lights).
So....back to Maplin and moonlights v3 is here!
If you want to see the tank please take a look at Fish Cam where there are 2 streaming live cams! To see how I did this you can view my other instructable HERE.
Step 1: Be safe!
Water + Electricity dont make happy fun!
If the choice is dead fish or dead people, i know what I'd choose.
Admittedly Ive got a bit more under my fish tank than most (2 Cameras, Firewall, Router, Wireless gateway, 2 Web cams, 2 timers and more.!) but this is a worthwhile investment!
