Custom Built Aquarium Light Plans

Hello All,

I have my first saltwater tank! It is 30 gallons in size.

I am planning to make a Reef Tank, therefore, I need LOTS OF LIGHTING!

Well, I've searched dealers and the internet and noticed the immense price tag on the metal halide fixtures.
So I thought about building one.

Does anyone know of plans on how to build a light fixture for aquariums. I need 1 175W 10k MH and 2 55w PC fixture.

Thanks for the help!
