It looks like you have looked up DIY LEDs just as much if not more than me. I can't see the links because we can't post ebay links here, but I'd love to see your work in progress as you build. I'm thinking about building one but it won't be for about a year till I start. So I haven't been looking to in depth about it yet.

I'm planning on working on it in maybe a month or two, I need to save and wait for shipping... But I will make a log throughout my build. I am going to make a custom moonlight for my girlfriends FW tank, and under dash/under seat LED's for my car and brothers. So Im going back to grade 9 science about circuits and what not :p

Here's my circuit plan for my grow light tube. (forgot to add resistors on it)
Blue resister is 330ohms
Red resister is 12ohms

Ok, so I just got 3 red fin cichlids (Malawi) (about 2.5-3" ea), and 2 black labs(male maybe 3.5 and female 3") for 20$ And a ram and they are loving the tank. I also have 3 assassin snails and 2 amanos. I still want to grab kuhli loaches, can I still grab them? And how many?

I have a 25g long tank for new viewers.

That literally doesn't mean anything.

OK
Mbuna don't always play well with plants - they do OK with tougher plant species usually.
