yes I do
its a glass top , I have it to keep cats out of my tanks and my fish in , my dart fish are jumpers and my snails always wanted out so now everyone stays in the tank
I have a comp fan built into a bio-filter lid blowing in , crack lid about a 1/4 inch and haven't had a heat issue since .
it brings in cool air blowing out the hot air , it works great
as for bio filter it is packed with cheato rather than filter media houses pods and releases them as they will

I keep my lights about 6 inch off top of tank
I have 2 aqua-life dual fixture t-5 lights 2 10k day spectrum and 2 blues and a blue/red led strip with 15 bulbs
the led strip also has a air stone in it I keep it mounted a inch above the water pumping in more cool air with a small air pump , it never touches the water seems to help disperse the hot air out of tank
I've been thinking of adding 1 of these on back of tank http://aquatek-california.com/cooling-fan-series/#4-fan
