ive been thinking of doing this for a long while now, just havnt had the chance. i thought about un-wiring night lights from home depot and rewiring them back together ( so they are connected and can be turned on and off ) i also thought about the LED route, but i wasnt sure which way to go. ill still prob. do it eventually but if i do go LED it looks like ill be using more then 3 lol.. but honestly that isnt super bad as you dont want them too bright but i think it wouldnt hurt to have another bulb or two- how does it look in person?
Sorry i posted late last night so i was kinda out of it,

It cost me, if you include the bulbs i burned, $11 roughly. I got my 9v from radioshack because it had the ability to chance output so that cost me about $15 so, 36 all together, which isn't bad and i can still add another light if i wanted to. If you already have a DC voltage converter (or whatever you call it) you won't need to spend that much.

In person, it looks great, i can see the entire tank, and little critters walking around the bottom, and who knows, maybe i can enduce coral spawning now that i have the ability to lower and raise the moon phases? idk, but it's a thought.

Thank you! There's still a lot of green, but it's diminishing slowly...

looks awesome Kellsindell. Don't fret about the green, at least it seems to be staying on the back glass and not covering your rocks! I've been battling with an outbreak of green algae (relatively new tank, ~4 months), and it coated my rocks . Its on the recession now, but it can't go away fast enough! Nothing makes 150 lbs of live rock look bad like a nice coat of green paint

Thanks, It's thankfully staying on the glass, and my tank is relitively new, i started in july i think, and you are quite right it would look horrible with an ugly green paint job. I don't want to imagine my LR with all that algae on it either i have about the same amount as you do.
