Thanks, I have a lot of reading to do. Overall, it does seem pretty simple. The hard part is deciding what you want to do. I'm an electrician by trade, so the wiring and fabrication should be too bad. I've done a rough budget, and I'm already at $524.53 plus $201.00, 48 XML leds/optics plus controller and four drivers. I will still need to buy the parts to assemble the fixture.

I picked up the tank tonight and my god is it heavy. Only me and my buddy to carry it up a set of stair and through a house to the truck, and then my landlord helped unload it as well around a house, down a concrete stairwell and into my tiny apartment. It was interesting...
