    Its not built into a box, you will need to build one.

    It has different spectrum whites and different blues

    Have you considered diy? Might lok better if you have a T5 either side of your LED.
    The ballasts are readily available and wiring them isnt too difficult.

    I have but not sure how to make it so it looks decent. Where can i get proper reflectors and do you cool the ballasts or bulbs if you build in a fan?

    LFS should be able to order proper ballasts. If you build them into a hood then you might need to cool the lights with a fan
