its going to be hard to find plans for exactly what you want but wiring the lights up is simple. just need end caps for fluorescent light bulbs mine were 5 dollars for a pair at home depot, a ballast with the correct amount output wires ( mine was dual) they make them in 1,2,3,4 bulb, also needs to be for the size of bulb youll be using. most likely 48" bulbs. and about 20 feet of hard wire. not speaker wire. how to wire it is on the ballast. wirethe ballast to a 4 way 2amp switch and use an old extenson cord to wire it to the switch. easy ! theres tons of stuff on line for it. aquarium lighting diy. i looked aat lots of these before doing mine. oh you can use t8 or t12 bulbs. i used t8 cuz i wanted the top to be small.
