I would be worried that the PC
bulb would produce enough heat to melt or soften a plastic light strip. PC
bulbs do get a little warm. Warm enough to a point that you cant just grap ahold of them after they ahve been on for a while.
Infact on my canopy that I have 2 36W bulbs I have the reflectors connected directly to the wood with no spacer and I learned that I can NOT put a plant on top of the tank unless I water it like everyday. This is because the top of the canopy gets warm to the touch. This is by the lights heating the reflector and that then heats the 3/8" plywood.
