diy floresent hood cooling
I am building a new enclosure for my light and wanted to put a cooling fan on one end of the fixture. I have a few fans that i removed from one of my old computers, but not sure how to wire it to turn on and off with my light. Any ideas would help. The ones i see online are around 30 bucks and i can't see spending that on a fan.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
Find a wall wart power supply with an output between about 9v and no higher then 12 volts and probably at least an output of 100mA ( can go higher), strip the ends of the fan and wall wart and hook them together and wrap them up.
