MH and Distance to water, pic included

Hello everyone, I finally got my MH hood to the location I hope to keep it at, however I wanted to make an inquiry as to wether or not its a safe location as well as good for performance. The pic enclosed shows the distance from the large glass center brace to the bulbs. Any suggestions one way or the other?

Wow that is a really close call. Is that 8.25 inches?
Does that hood have a glass cover over the bulbs? or is it open, and what is the actual distance from the bulbs to the water or brace?

The hood does have a protective lens, the distance from the base of the bulb to the center center brace (brace sits right at waterline) is 8.25 inches. The hood has two 4" fans and I have added two computer fans that sit on the brace to help vent the heat.

You should be fine. My lights are approx 9" off the water surface and this is with no protective lense covering...

Well, they have been burning for 2.5 hours now and temp hasn't budged from 80.8 so temp is looking good, I appreciate all your replies. Makes me feel more comfortable. I wasn't sure if 400 watters would be okay that close. The light appears evenly distributed though.

Do the Pc's do any good, I was just wondering, if you can tell the difference when they are on or off?
