Question Clip on led questions

I have never attempted to build a light or tank. But I have my diy solution moments. This time I need your guys help and expertise, especially those who have built led lights before.

I posted a thread in the lighting forum but no one has really helped me.

I have an aqueon evolve two. And as you all may know the lighting SUCKs, the only thing I like it the blue moonlights.so I was thinking of upgrading or building one when budget permits,

What I would like is a square head that is about 5x5 inches. Has a clip and swinging arm, red lights for photo periods, white daylight bulbs. And blue moonlight LEDs so I have a moonlight. But the blue to also turn on with the red and white. Preferable that it is 7000k.

Any ideas on how to build this and pricing for it.

must....have.....more....moss n shrimp!!!!!!!!!!

Something like this?

http://www.amazon.com/Finnex-Might-Light-White-Blue/dp/B0062PTNCS/ref=sr_1_13?ie=UTF8&qid=1376596012&sr=8-13&keywords=finnex
Be sure to read this about that fixture https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...=finnex+mighty



Or even these on timers, but the blue version is way too strong for a 2 gallon moonlight

Be sure to read this about the second one

Just my opinion, they are single 3watt led and pretty intense. The white one looks great, I have one over a bowl. Very natural pleasing color.

The blue is more of a saltwater actinic brightness than a gentle moonlight (at least on a tiny tank). Never been a big fan of blue moonlights myself, a very dim white looks much more pleasing to me
