sorry about that. Hope the dude abides my incompetence. Did you get the 2 light or 4 light one? I shouldn't have assumed the wiring would be exactly like mine.
Lol! I got the 2 bulb 48" fixture. It was really just a fun extra thing to do to get some more light over my 75g until my 3*54w T5HO Catalina fixture arrives on Wed. I was going to use this with my existing 32w T8 fixture that came with the tank. Oh well. I'll get what I need tomorrow and play with it.

Good choice on the catalina!! Awesome fixture for the price. One day I'll own one of those
I don't know man. I found a 3 prong cord and got out the sauder (sp?) and saudering iron and went to town. Then I wrapped each individual wire with electrical tape then everything leading to the entry to the fixture. It puts out alot of light when combined with my 8K T8 48" fixture. 96 watts of T8 right on top of the tank! I'm sure I'll switch out to the new light when it gets here since the wife wants everything to look totally Proffessional. If it weren't for that I'd return the Catalina. This is a great DIY and total was about $27 with bulbs!!
