I want to upgrade to MH
lighting on my 55gal. The problem is I only have 5" from top of tank to top of inside face of canopy. Can I install a MH
retro in this little space? With this little space between lights and water, how do most people go about protecting the lights from the water? I know a glass/plastic shield is used, but is it placed directly on top of the tank or is there a better way of doing this? I want to be able to easily access my tank without having to remove a 4' sheet of glass everytime I need to maintance the tank.
system would work, but I would prefer to not have that bulky thing inside the canopy and saving money on a DIY
project is also a plus
, the canopy is a flip open on top.
