Step 1: The Design
Then I found a scrap piece of balsa wood and traced the top of my bowl onto it and cut it out. I cut the balsa wood into a half
moon shape so I would have a small opening so that I could still feed my fish without having to take the whole top off.
Then I found a small circuit board that had red, yellow, and blue leds on it and a controller that turns the LEDs on and off in patterns. I glued the small circuit board onto the balsa wood after cuttin a small notch for the LEDs to fit into. A switch was soldered onto the positive lead followed by a 47 ohm resistor, then I soldered the end of my USB cable to the end of the resistor, and the negative wire of the cable to the negative terminal on the circuit board.
Step 2: Finished!!!
Now if your confident in yourself that you built this right and no wires are touching, then plug it into your computer. BUT if you really dont want to fry your computer because the circuit is shorting out, then I would suggest that you test this out with your power supply first. I made a power supply from an old computer ATX power supply, and it just so happens... That it has a 5v output!!!
I am not responsible for your actions and if you fry your computer due to your limited soldering soldering skills,Well dont contact me, just have a nice talk with yourself :)

And in case you were wondering what happened to the date in all of my pictures, My camera reset itself and I didnt reset the date. The Video and some more pictures are on the next step
