    Thanks for the feedback. I spoke to a guy at Lamphouse and he says they only sell the fittings thats complete and its not really for an aquarium, what exactly should i be asking for or looking for.

    Do you wanna build your own? If not you can get a completely built unit at most aqauriums, try SAMS in Diep river
