    How did the conversion to pixels work our for you? Any pics or vids of it yet?

    The lights can be switched out for RGB lights fairly easily. I'm sure those who have seen the insides know this. The pump is an 120v AC pump so that's just a snip and connect to the pump. The circuit board/LEDs comes out easily. There is a hose in the center for the aerator. I've cut circular piece of coro to put in there with a pass through hole for the tube and some channels cut for bullet pixels. I'm going to start testing with bullet pixels tonight and thinking 6 will be perfect.

    I'll then use rectangular pixels for under the bowl and use electrical tape to stop bleed over from the tube lights.

    Pulling the trigger on building a couple. A seller on eBay has 5 gallon buckets of propylene glycol for $70 shipped. I'm pretty local and he accepted my $60 offer. Good price per gallon.

    Lol and he just dropped his price to $60.

    I'll tell you, I am mixed on whether I am happy with them. they are kind of a pain to store in mine certainly aren't as sturdy as I would have liked.
