Bigger pics! Looks good but I can't see too well.

What kind/how many lights are you using? Type/model/wattage/color temp/lumens, whatever you know. ;) I'm nosy.

And here's a walk-through for your computer fan problem: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=2067&p=24474&hilit=+computer+fan+#p24474

Good luck. :)

What modifications to that FAQ would have to be done for a 3 wire (red,blue,black) cpu fan?

Probably just a 2 speed fan. I would try putting the negative on the black wire, and the positive on either red or blue. You can leave the other one loose once you decide the speed.

Looking good though! Bigger pics are a must!

once I get a camera that isn't my wife's cellphone I will be more than happy to oblige lol. As far as lighting goes it is 2 75 watt 7500k florescents. After 2 days the temps in the terrarium have not gotten above 85 degrees so I am in no rush to set up the fan at this time. Especially since the plants in there are not very sensitive CP's.
