Semi-DIY Moonlights

I didn't build these from scratch, but for what you can buy them for it is hard to justify not purchasing them. I bought the moonlight set of eBay. The title of the auction is '48" 60 LED Moonlight Aquarium Moon Light & Power Supply'. It cost about $60 shipped, and appears to be decent for aquarium use. It has just the right amount of light for what I was looking for. I'm usually up late, so I wanted some extra 'use' out of my aquarium. I used some nylon spacers from Lowe's to create the mounts to lower the LED tubes. I'll take more pictures later once the lights go off and the moonlights are on.

This photo doesn't do it justice. It isn't near as bright as it looks in the picture. With the flash off, the camera picks up any light and amplifies it. I bet it is only 1/10th as bright as it looks. Just figured that I'd share anyway.
