Best bet is to build something like this in stages that allow you to get some use out of the thing so that you can see what you need to add, and then start saving up. It will cost you more than you planned due to needing tools and whatnot.

This way, you dont get overwhelmed and then discouraged. The end product makes it all worth it though! Be sure that you are not spending more than a comparable commercial unit. I made that mistake with mine and looking at the Maxspect brand led lighting. They use CREE leds now I believe...

Sorry guys, I've been busy lately. I need to redo the circuit board with the correct parts... cause one of the LEDs just doesn't work, but it does when I hook it up to battery. It is wired correctly, I promise. So it's just a bit of a snag, and with my tank half emptying the other day, it's been the last thing on my mind lately. I'll work on it again soon I promise.
