lighting question

I am about to install an Ice Cap 660 on my 125...obviously its a VHO system. Im going to probably run 3 x 110. I have about 10-12 inches between the top of the canapoy and the top of the water. My temp runs up to 80-83 now with just reg NO lighting. Any precautions I should take with regards to temp, setup, etc? I have 1 fan blowing across the top of the tank water, 1 blowing into the sump and one in the cabinet area blowing around in general. I have 2 places for the canapoy fans but I took them out as they were really dirty and both were blowing onto the top of the water...

Have the canopy fans blowing out rather than in. this will actually keep the inside of the canopy cooler.

I like one in and one out! Keeps air moving across the water causing evaporation. VHO'S really do not run that hot though.
