The bulb does not necessarily have to get hot to warm water (although it can't hurt) ... just the light (which is energy) is absorbed by water increasing the temperature .. albiet should not be by much. See if this scenario applies .... You have a large (surface area) heated, constantly lit tank in an air conditioned (low humidity) room where air is flowing (from a fan or vent) over the tank.

hmm thats actually really interesting, i know for a fact you can still handle the tubes with your hands and not get burnt so i don't see how the extra two bulbs would radiate enough heat, but then again i've never put that many lights over my aquarium. i'm still lookign for a fixture to put over mine.

today i go some a few PC fixtures that i hope i'll be able to use over mine
