 Hey  guys
 
 My  tank  dimension  is  30"x18"x18"(LxBxH).
 
 I  want  to  install  two  of  the  120mm  PC  fans.  I  know  they  should  be  connected  in  parallel  to  a  12  volt  Adapter.  However  the  current  rating  of  these  fans  are  0.2A.  So  two  fans  will  require  0.4A  of  current.
 
 Are  there  12v  adapters  available  with  0.4A  current  ratings?  Morever  should  I  be  requiring  more  than  two  such  fans?
 
 I  have  posted  a  link  to  the  fan  I  want  to  buy  from  flipkart.

 Anything  more  than  or  equal  to  the  .4a  should  be  ok.  Just  be  sure  you  buy  the  one  with  coper  winding  and  not  the  new  electronic  adapters.  They  can  catch  fire  if  shorted.......  I  use  a  .5a  for  my  two  fans.  I  recently  upgraded  to  a  panel  cooling  fan.  Its  very  effective  and  has  its  own  adapter  builtin.  It  was  comparable  to  the  price  of  two  pc  fans  with  adapter  costs  additional.....

 Go  to  any  electronics  shop  and  you  should  get  them.  Its  normally  used  in  computer  panels  which  are  used  in  server  rooms  in  offices.   Its  very  powerful.  Ask  for  panel  mouting  fan  and  they  should  know  it.
