Wiring 101 - tunze osmolator and multicontroller

Hello all,

I recently had to change out the pump for my tunze osmolator, and I could not disconnect the original pump. So I snipped the wire, stripped it, and wired it to the new pump. I have never done any kind of electrical work before. Is this okay to do? Does this look alright? I dont want to start a fire or something.

Also, is there any way I can do something similar to add extra LED moonlights to my multicontroller? It only comes with one LED which doesn't cover a 4' tank. 1-3 more would be nice. I could just add them in separately, but the multicontroller varies the intensity on a 29 day cycle, so it would be nice to have them all controlled.

If it's worth doing, it's worth doing right.

I remember when zoanthids were called things like "green" and "orange" and not "reverse gorilla nipple."

Current Tank Info: 180g reef with all the bells and whistles
