I got the canopy sanded down fully right now ready to be stained. This is what it looks like. Think it's got enough ventilation?

The person had a fan attached to the back of the canopy but it was all rusted so I took it off. How do I know if it's do hot?

Trust me, you aren't going to be getting a ton of heat from the fixtures. You could attach another fan if you like, to push out the humidity, but I would suggest installing it the correct way- blowing IN. Why someone would install fans to suck out moist air is beyond me.

Haha! Alright so I think for now I'll leave it but if I notice an issue I'll add the fan.

Looks like it's got an open back too. Looks good. That's a really nice canopy.

Is this the sort of return pump I need? And is it the right GPH for my tank?

Do I need to go bigger/smaller with the 9.5 or is it perfect? Lol
