 Coool   Cheering  ,  i  am  working  similar  for  the  my  12"pot,  i  wanted  to  start  on  something  smaller.  I  am  using  12V  adapter  instead  of  drivers.  12  v  adapters  are  usually  lying  around  in  home  to  went  for  that.
 
 The  lenses,  from  where  did  you  buy  that,  i  couldnt  get  those.  Sad

 As  per  the  request  i  am  posting  the  individual  part  list  with  cost
 
 Parts  List:  
 
 Cool  White  LEDs  -  Rs.  75  -  80
 Royal  Blue  LEDs  -  Rs.  100  -  110
 7-  10  *  3  Watt  Led  driver.  Rs.  750
 1  -  Thermal  Glue  100  
 Aluminium  extrusion  for  body.  400  
 Some  Wire  40
 Soldering  machine  90
 Soldering  Wire  100
 Lot  of  research  -  Priceless
 
 
 I  will  use  24  Royal  Blue  and  24  Cool  White
 So     24  *  75     =  1800
 And  24  *  100   =  2400
 6  Drivers  =  4500
 1  -  Thermal  Glue  =  100
 Aluminium  extrusion  =  400
 Some  Wire  =  100
 Soldering  machine  =  90
 Soldering  Wire  =  100
 Multimeter  =  150
 
 So  total  cost  wll  be  Rs.  9540
 And  it  will  be  for  4  *  2  *  2  Size  tank
 you  can  go  for  less  LEDs  if  you  have  smaller  tank.

 besides  this  http://ledcalc.com/,  this  is  another  handy  link,  if  you  dont  want  to  use  the  driver  but  use  the  adapter,  It  will  help  you  in  doing  the  calculation.
