Get the fans with just 2 wires, but then it is like you said. You may want to get another coverter for the canopy fan as you might want to run it at full speed.
For mine is both cases here is what I did:
The back plastic part of the store bought lid, I cut or drilled out a lot of it. Then I coverd this with a very fine mesh (used for crafts), then I siliconed/taped (electrical tape) it over the larger holes. Then I just have the fan sitting right on top of that blowing air in. The neat thing is that you can adjust the air by moving the fan over the vents or not over the vents. My fans fun very slow so they don't move around and have been fine just sitting there.
:im wanting to just use one for defogging the glass and see how that works out and put another in the canopy im going to make to get some fresh air in there to go into the tank and help cool down the flourescent light a little bit, but it wont get that hot any ways.
:how do you wire it? just positive to positive and negitave to negative? i dont know because those computer fans have 3 or 4 wires dont they?
