That driftwood is insane! Very nice piece! Great job on the reinforcing of the floor and building the hood also. Coming along nicely man, lookin good! I actually like the glow from the moonlight, never thought about rope lighting in a full hood...very ingenious. I am sure you could find an in-line dimmer and set it where you prefer if you would want...just a matter of finding or modifying something to work. In fact, you could prob buy a cool white ropelight to add to it and have a dimmer on that also and mix the blue/white to where you want it. Thats basically what I have done with my moonlights.

I've just replaced all my 13=60 watt CFL bulbs with 23=100 watt CFL's. I felt like i wasn't getting the light I needed for my pressurized CO2 setup so I've decided to up it and see.

Try white ones - it is all personal preference but I like a dim white moonlight rather than the artificial blue glow (look at the moon at night, it is clean bright white, not neon sign blue )

Here is my homemade white moonlights, they are just 2 LED nightlights - a little brighter would be better but it was the best I had access too

Playing around with the panoramic mode on my camera.



I just bumped up my lighting, but I didn't notice my C02 tank was empty - I think that's' why my bubble counter was bone dry one day a week or two ago, and I didn't notice it. Woops.
