mid project of re-engineering an Eclipse Hood for my 25g. The filter was removed already by the person that sold me the tank/hood/stand. currently using a whisper 60. I added a length of treated balsa wood to stabilize the hood (when I got it the back end was very flimsy.)
so I wanted to change to LED lighting (it was overdue time to replace the two T8's). got a Fluval Ultra Bright 18" from LFS. I coulda saved $30 at drfostersmith but like getting from LFS when I can.
the new LED is nice and bright, actually supposed to put out same as the two T8's but looks nicer. I currently have a decent Go Aqua clip-n LED but plan to replace with a better and less obtusive LED strip
NEW FLUVAL ULTRA BRIGHT
removed front light section from eclipse canopy, and removed light fixture from it
cant see two well but drilled 2 seta of holes on outter edges, and drilled 7 single holes along edge. this is for future use in possibly securing an LED strip
close-up of one side. you can see the zip-cords already threaded thru the outer sets
the LED fits nicely within the canopy piece. two sets of zips cords on either end securing the LED by way of the extended pieces
close-up showing the extended piece strapped down
the open eclipse with bothe pieces removed. you can see the stabilizing wood piece. also the clip-on LED I have been using in addition to the T8's.
would show pics of the lit tank but my water is slightly cloudy from medication currently. embarrased, sorry LOL
