if its covered by the light fixture then what about water splashing up too the bulbs?
This gonna sound kinda smart alecy, but try not to drop things in your tank. Fish rarely cause splash, and it's not a good idea to incorporate splash in filtration arrangement. I keep a 175W MH
light and two PC
lights 7-8" from the water surface (with nothing between them and the water) without any problems.[/quote]
thats true i was just thinking of some of the fresh water fish i used too own like oscars and arowanas and they always splashed, id have a empty tank if it wasnt cover for them, i guess it would depend if its a reef tank or a spieces tank with a big grouper or something cause the grouper at my lfs
24" plus make a BIG splash during feeding time.
