This will depend on the type of fixture you buy to sit on top. If you get a fixture that has mounting legs and raise it up, then (IMHO) you get light scatter. I have my Coralife fixture resting directly on top of my 55gal with glass tops to slow evaporation, and there is no significant light scatter.
