Evening everyone. This may be a true novice question but I need to know for my wife's peace of mind and....well mine also.
I just finished building my canopy and installing my PC
retro kit. I have 6x96w 50/50 pc
's on top of a 75g. Long story as to why I went this route instead of Halides.
Anyway, I mounted all the lighting and went to put the canopy on and the reflector hits the overflow tubes (running 2 hang on the back overflows right now) I guess I could bend the reflector out so that the canopy can be put on all the way. Right now it is (canopy) hanging over the front by about 2 1/2-3". Would the heat from the 96w pc
burn through the overflow tubes if I bend this out so it clears them? Or should I just bend the reflector in towards the light? If I do that then I block some of the light getting into the tank.
Not sure how to handle this. I can not mount the rear deflector differently either. I have 2 refelectors. 1 is running 4 of the pc
's (front portion) the second (rear one) is running 2 96w pc
Any help or suggestion is much appreciated.
Thank you as always for your help and guidance.
