Hi guys
This is my second attempt at retrofitting the hood the first time the hood became to hot. So now I have cut two holes in and will fit dc boxer fans, one to blow the other to suck. Here is pic 1:

The drip tray is empty and needs to be removed and replaced by another lighting hood. It has to be as nice as the current one.
Edit: The fans are not in yet as well as the 5t`s, they will go in today.

I want to have a closed hood for the drip tray side as well. Just incase the Hawk fish wants to go flying ;). Today I will post pics of the t5`s going in, at the moment I will just use two t5`s and two t8`s (one atinic t8).
My tank is currently used to two white t8 and one atinic t8.

Top pic is the first try at using the t5`s. Thanks Rory.
The bottom is a closeup of the fan cover. It still does not have the fan in, I have a space issue that has to be sorted because I want to recess the fans.

I only see the first pic. Those are nice looking fans. It appears they are recessed. Is your tank on the tank tour? I would like to see it.

Thanks Guys! Eish its been difficult working without my brain Kanga LOL :)
Anyway for the supply I am using a HP printer supply, finally a use for all these scrap printers. The volts were a tad high so i put the fans in series and the grumpy one has calmed down ;) .
I ran the hood without fans for a hour and when I put the fans on the air temp was 35 deg C Aargh! so I need them fans.
