aquarium canopy design
Alright heres the deal. My equipment on my 29 gallon has been getting on my nerves lately so now its time to build a canopy. The first problem is my T5 lights are not suppose to be kept in a canopy. Here is my idea to bi pass this problem. The canopy will have three sides, no back. The front panel of the hood will by on henge's and have two computer fans exhausting hot air away from my lights and pulling fresh air in the back. I am using two 12v fans. The next problem is ac/dc converters are expensive so here is my cheapskate break through! I am going to use a cell phone charger as an ac/dc converter! how ever this is only 5 volts, which will slow down the output of the fans. Will 5 volts of power be enough to help cool my canopy?
