It's probably referring to the heat possibly melting the egg crate. If you have the MHs up high enough, I doubt you'll have issues. If you can't get them higher, try running a fan across the tank.

It's the platic grating used on flourescent lights in commercial buildings. You can pick it up in Home Depot, Lowes, etc.
