I'm not sure which ones you have at Radioshack, but they're about 4x more expensive there. They're also a little less intensive.

Look at the price you are going to pay at radio shack for them!!! 2.99 per bulb. I used 16 bulbs on my 55gal tank! I wouldnt pay that much for them. Thats rediculous. Order 20 bulbs from lsdiods.com for 10bucks. Get your resistors and AC/DC transformer from www.bgmicro.com. The whole thing will cost 20 bucks at most.

Ok, now I understand how to connect the led to the resistor and all that now I need to know how to connect all that stuff to an ac/dc transformer? Never seen a 12v ac/dc before. Should I get one from radioshack, and how much do they run??

You want DC, not ac. The led's are DC.

What I used was a plug in transformer for a portable Cd player. 4.5 volts, 39 ohm resistors. I am working on seeing if my isp has enough disk space for the moonlight file if so them you can just download it.
