I installed two 15 led light strips, Target Green Portable Cabinet Light, should have looked, it says "suitable for dry location only". As you can see from the dark picture of the aquarium, it gave a nice night time effect when the main lights were off. I was watching my fish one day when there was a loud boom and the top came up about 2 inches above the aquarium, scared the life out of me. Lifting the top the smoke billowed out and I found a capacitor at one end of one light strip had blown up, bottom picture, they are no longer in my canopy.
