Default 10 gallon Nano PAR30 LED ***Updated video 12/03/10***

Updated some Pics

OK here is my 10 gallon nano I am setting up. It has been running for about 2 days. I have a HOB Aquaclear 110 turned into a Fuge. The light over the fuge is a 24w 50/50 that I will be getting a 6700k bulb for it. I will have a Koralia K1, I think it should work well with this tank...? Honestly not sure of the weight of the rocks or the sand. For lighting I have ordered 2 PAR30 LED bulbs.
For the mounting of the PAR30's, I didnt want to just use a camp on or anything so I thought I try my hand at creating a canopy. I think it turned out ok for my limited skills with wood. I plan on painting it black. I also have an LED light tube that should work well for a moonlight.

thoughts or input always welcome.

last one for now, more work to do tomorrow if I have time.

Oh thought I'd also tell how much it cost to get here.
Lights- PAR30 x2= $140 with shipping
Pieces used for electrical= $17 at Home Depot
Tank = $13
Koralia K1 is $10 from a friend w/ LR to seed my tank
Aquaclear 110 was a leftover from another tank
Light on fuge, again was a left over.

ok here is todays update and work I did. So far I am happy with it. painted everything black wired my lights....there is a test bulb in the picture and that isnt what I am gonna be using.

the only problem I am finding so far is...The light coming from the Fuge is coming in kinda strong into the tank. thats gonna cause algae problems and also not allow a good day night cycle for the tank.
