No problem! Glad it helped!
So, I fixed the wiring today, and I think that I may have greatly overestimated how much light I need on this little tank.
The first picture is of the correct wiring. A bit simpler over all.
The second is the tank with the 15W fluorescent top from a 10 gallon.
The third is taken with the exact same camera settings, but is of three LEDs shining into the tank. You can see that they are a lot brighter than the fluorescent! And this is without any kind of reflector, so I am actually losing a significant amount of light off to the sides! I think that part of the reason that I overestimated by so much is that the fluorescent bulb is old, over three years old I think. Anyway, it is okay, because I can always dim them, and if I want I can take off two of the six later. But it is kind of surprising!
I'll keep you up to date as I keep going! This is getting exciting now!
