building a tank hood and wiring from scratch
i'm building an ornamental hood for my 20 gallon aquairium that will provide more light for my plants. the hood itself will be 5" tall. i want to wire two single bulb flourscent lights from two older hoods and two cpu fans into into the new hood. it would be really convient if i could wire them all to one switch and one power cord. i now there will have to be some kind of converter between the cpu fans and the flourescent lights because of the difference in voltage. i imagine i could just cut the cords of the two flourescent lights and combine them with one cord, but i dont know how to wire them to the same switch. they each have their own switch. i'd like the fans run all the time but i'd like to be able to turn off the lights at night. does any have any suggestions and wiring tips for an ameteur?
