I've had this Fish Clock tank for years sitting in the dark in my closet. I finally decided to do something about it and turn it into a Naturally Planted Tank with no filters, just dirt, sand, plants and a light. Recently I discovered a small website that sold small LED lights, perfect for what I have in mind and it came in today. Unfortunately, there's no ballast so I don't have any actual light pictures yet.

The front is coming off so I will have to take the back off and silicone the plexiglass back on. I'm not certain what I want to do with the light yet. Should I leave the hinge and mount on and have the light be outside or should I take the hinge off and the plastic L looks like it comes apart so I could silicone the hole to make the light waterproof and mount it inside the tank?

On to pictures!

Thanks! Someone told me that silicone isn't a good mix with plastic/plexiglass but I can't find any concrete information on this. At least not in particular to aquariums. I'm still looking it up but I definitely don't want to risk this tank. All I'm finding is plastic silicone adhesive and I doubt that's aquarium-friendly.
