I looked at ahsupply.com and the prices are pretty steep, considering you can get a super nice looking 48inch compact flourescent from All-Glass from big als for around 110 dollars, just the hardware from ahsupply for a 110 watt setup was 65 bucks, then the time to contruct a wood hood, it was just cheaper to get the All-Glass unit, though I went with a triple tube t8 strip light in the end because the bulbs are much cheaper, and t8 is going to be around for a long long time.
