Yes a ripoff of the “hog algea scrubber” funny enough by santamonica filtration
This is a good one you wont get the best results but it will work
Make sure it seals nice and the air can get out also you need to keep your glass clean

I purchased
AC 85-265V to DC 26-39V 8-12x1W LED Light Waterproof Driver
Its not available anymore i tried linking it here and saw they don’t sell the item anymore but you can definitely find some other brand for cheap just replace them and you should be good
just check the lights every once in a while make sure all is good
