Done! Finished it late last night.



Added some electrical tape to the 60 degree optics because they were clear housing


Obligatory pic of them on:


Attached to the fixture


Facing the right way




On the tank:


I haven't tested them out yet, looking forward to try them out when I get home from work. I am probably going to have to raise the fixture up to avoid any spotlighting. I am also wondering if I will need a fan... time to gut my old pc.
