You need to buy a hood (which will have the ballast already installed), unless you want to totally DIY and buy the endcaps and build your own hood.

You can get VHO lighting hoods from just about any fish retailer both online and offline. Not too sure about the endcaps. Perhaps someone else will know where those can be had.

Send a message via Yahoo to loganj
Check at www.ahsupply.com . They have some enclosures that they sell for their PC systems. I'm pretty sure they are bare with no ballast or wiring installed. You might be able to use one of them for your VHO bulb.

I can get ABS lighting canopies that are empty but you will need to modify it to suit.
