| || | AH lighting kit-Is it hard to build?
I am looking to get the 2x55w kits for my soon to start planted aquarium. From the looks of it i will have no problem either making a hood to place them in or just using what I have to place them in. #1 My concern is all the wiring it looks like i will have to do to create this thing. #2 with the clamps that hold the bulbs in..are they really secure? #3 how long do they take to put them together, i plan on making the enclosure before they arrive with the dimensions or should i wait.
does the wires require you to strip the wires and splice them together in any way..ive never had good attempts at stripping (bad memeories). or is the kit basicly "attach wire a into slot b or something.
I dont want to get the kit and screw something up due to my lack of electrical abilities. Any input of someones experience doing this kit would be appreciated.
