de-soldered and rewired the whole light. added some eye bolts for hanging the fixture which are also attached to a plexi splash guard. also attached all the optics....big difference

attached and wired in some mini fans I found in the house, came from an old biocube hood i salvaged from a dumpster. with only one fan running, it is cooling the majority of the alu channel at least half, and it's a tiny fan. all I'm missing is a good enough power supply to run it up to full strength and this light will easliy do the 75P in low-med light...perfect. on my 13g shown below, it would be way too much, more so than the t5h0 on it.

blurry cell pic, this is with out most of the optics on.
