soooo. i bit the bullet and ordered a DIY led kit from reefledlights.com. it got shipped out today, so hopefully by next week, ill start building the fixture...

12" heat sink with 16 blue, 8 white, and then a 6 led "high noon" white kit for extra growth.. all 3 sets of LEDs will be individually controled so that the lights will have a day/night cycle. and they are all dimable

a week later and still nothing has shown up at my door....i hope it will be here tomorrow..... ugh.....

anyways, has anyone had any experience with installing a heatsink in a jbj nano, or bio-cube hood? i want this to all be able to fit into my original hood and since i havnt actuall been able to see the heatsink, im not sure how i am going to mount it in the hood... i guess the most strait forward way would be to just measure the pegs for the oem lights and just drill holes in the heatsink and just screw it in that way... but im open for suggestions
