    I've bought a simple fan (with heat/cold sink) for 5 euro.
    And an adapter/converter for 6. Connecting them is very simple but I see you already have it done.

    Its gonna be placed inside the cooling element which I deconstructed out of an old fridge. I'll post pictures when it's done. Which will most likely be this week.

    Just some advice; don't overkill the amount of volt or am you squeeze through the fan because it won't do the fan any good. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]

    looks pretty good, but you might wanna wrap electrical tape around any wires that are exposed. just for safety sack.

    I agree about the electrical tape. I just setup my first terrarium 3mo ago and left just a tiny bit of metal wire of my fan exposed when plugging it in......there was a small explosion! Make sure the spliced wires are well-insulated.

    About the fans....looks like they're being bolted to the side of the tank. I kept mine loose (they're sitting on a flat rock at the bottom of the tank) so that I could take them out or move them around later. Just a thought.....
