I would really appreciate the help, thank you!
I have 2 x 2 gal right now with a JBJ 3 gal pico
upgrade on the way, I love the smooth all glass look. I'll be rehoming the dwarf sag, sword pups, driftwood and 3 shrimp and retiring one of the 2 gal. I was thinking of gutting the 9w cfl that comes with the JBJ and using it to house the leds but I'd like the power source (meanwell? buck puck?) to look o.e. not diy-sloppy-addon .
I've been reading diy led threads. Some folks are using wall walts from cellphones, etc but I understand they are unregulated and the output shown on their label is only accurate when used to drive the device for which they are meant. Does that sound correct?
Am I overthinking this? LOL
