No thanks needed, but appreciated. I'm all for getting LEDs into the hands of the hobbyist.
Craigthor, looks like I already started answering some of your questions on NR.
The fixture seems to be a nice size, and with some careful planning, it could be made into a pretty sweet little LED fixture.
For a tank as small as yours, I think you can get away with 6 LEDs. You are going to have a hard time finding any high power LEDs with a color temp higher than 6500K. There are some, but they are few and far between. Kai Domain and Deal Extreme have Cree R2 WC bin LEDs, which will be around 7000K, but thats as high as you will be able to get cheaply. Cutter has Q3 WA bins, which is as close to 10K as you are going to get. I don't know if you are going to want something that blue anyway. It will really wash out the reds.
