Welcome to AquariumAdvice.com

Be careful if it's the plexi splash guard. If the lights are too close to the water surface, splashing can cause problems. If there is a glass divider as well, then remove the glass. Might also be how the fan was installed or you may just need another one. PC lights are generally easy to keep cool. Make sure the fan is pulling the air out, not pushing the air into the hood. It makes alot of difference.

If you're concerned about the fish jumping, get eggcrate to put over the top of the tank. You can get it at most HD- it is used for light fixtures in offices and such.
