It means there are lots of pictures, and for dial up users they will have to wait a long time.

Radio shack has a nice markup on its parts. I would check a online electronics store..

just some small advice, but when working with heat sensitive wiring, such as LED's, you can use heat shunts, pretty cheap from online sources. They pull the heat right out of the wire at the point that they connect.

-- a diffuser pannel made of plastic from a old warn out flourescent light setup (you know the little textured panel that ran from end to end to keep water off the bulbs) placed under the strip with your led's pointing through would make the little beams spread out much better. Doing the same thing for my tank, will send some shots of it when done.

awesome step by step though, gonna use it as a guide actually.
thanks again.

This is a very good write up. I have successfully set up the moonlight system with your instructions. It was very informative and helpful.Thank you very much. I wish I could get a good picture of the aquarium to show how it looks now. Thanks again RLG2182

cool setup, only problem I see and it would only happen a long time down the road is if one of those leds goes out the whole thing goes out b/c from what I can see its wired in a series.
