I have a heatsink like that for my 10 inch cube tank that I'm building right now. I was able to find it on the "bay of e."

Awesome build. But that's the specifics on it. Par, lumens, high or medium lighting? Price wise would it be something you would build to sell

for heatsink i buy from pusatled.com, and 15cm for height of the stand. i am not using lens because the height of the tank is only 40cm.
