ok for the housing I use 1.5 nylon fencing post 30" long (this is my tank width) then I cut a piece of 1/8 plexglass 30" long to use for the mounting board, which slides into the square tubing.(bought at homedepot) drilled all the holes for the led's and mounting screws. The holes in the outer tube are 3/16 larger so the light will shine thru. for the wiring I wired and the neg sides of the led together and on the postive side you have to add a 1/2 watt 150 ohm resistors. and then I added a switch for on and off...for the power supply you have to use a 6VDC@300mA Power Supply. For the led's I used Mega-Bright Super Blue (30 Deg.): 5,500+ mcd
from http://www.lc-led.com/main.html.......here is a link on some information to get you started

Its kind of hard to explain the step I told to built the moonlight bar, I was just thinking of parts to use as I was going....but it looks like it was store bought
