Theyre fairly self explanitory. Phone charger (I used a power cord for an old modem) 120V input 12v output (match for your PC fan) and make sure that the charger puts out more amps than the fan uses or the fan will run slow. You can also use a 17V on a 12V fan and give it a speed boost but it severely shortens the life.

Yay subtropical! It's always fun to do a native tank. Are there tidepools on the gulf? I've never bee before so i don't know, but from what i here the gulf has small waves and no tide.

Sad. Is there anything in your tropical tank? Subtropical waters are really seasonal tropical-temperate waters i guess. But anyways...what is it?! Happy Dance
