wiring cpu fans to hood

i have a cheap laptop cooling pad that stopped working and i'd like wire the fans to the hood of my 20 gallon aquarium. i took the fans out and tested them with a 9 volt battery and they both work fine connected to the battery. can anyone please tell me how to wire the fans to a regular outlet plug.

You will just need an AC to 9V converter.

to be more precise.
You strip the end wires of the adapter/converter. One line is positive, one line is negative. You hook those wires to the +, - of the fan.
