I checked everything again today and it seems pretty stable and everything is working. I think the wiring is doing great. My only problem now is the shaft on my potentiometer is pretty long and i'm wondering if there is a way i can file it down some.

Catalina Aquarium carries empty light fixtures for DIY use. Not a bad price and looks better than any DIY fixture I've seen, including my own

I know u posted awhile ago but i would think its just like adding a on/off switch to the LEDs.
