PIC request of an Advanced T5 ballast wired to two bulbs

Anyone have a retro setup using an Advanced ballast with two T5 bulbs? Im about to start wiring the first side of my tank and want to be certain i am laying it out as cleanly as possible since it will be moved around quite a bit (its going over a frag tank).

Pics are nice! Also how did everyone splice the wires together? A standard "T" splice, or is there something better?

Do you have a wiring harness or are you wiring it yourself? I bought a reefgeek retro and didn't have to splice anything. It was all pretty straight forward

I am wiring it myself, which is fine by me...but this is the first harness i have had to splice wires together on. Ive wired a IC660 into a fixture and there were no splices in that... The whole idea seems kind of 'rigged' to me, but right in the diagram it shows a splice.

You know what...i just sketched it out and there are no splices. I must have been smoking crack when i started this thread....
