    So the bug has bitten like with all hobbyists, last week i started with a real nano of nano's in the form of a Jebo 40l, that lasted a day or two and i decided to get rid of it sold it on and bought a TL 550 from this forum. :tt2:

    Got home and got it setup with sand, live rock and saltwater, tried out the lighting as this one has a moonlight setting as well so i took it a step further.

    Got myself a remote controlled module as in pic, and then color changing LED strip cut it to size routed the cables in the lid and secured, my plan really is not to change the colors but to mimic the moonlight setting of the tank and being able to control the brightness is an added bonus.

    This also enabled me to run 2 timers
    Main Light 7:00 - 18:30
    LED Moonlight 18:25 - 7:05

    Here are some pics of this simple mod
