Usually the 48s mount on the edge of the tank and are held above the bar and water.

The bar is the center brace that helps keep the tank from bowing.

Nope. There should be no shadow. The plastic will not burn or melt.

It won't burn the plastic the bulbs don't get hot enough as far as the shadow I seriously doubt if it would be visible it's not on my 55 albeit I only have around 70 watts of t8.
