OK so I have a canopy over my 90g that has 6.5" of clearance between the water and top of the canopy. Enough for t5 lights, which I'm considering, but also don't want to rule out mh
. It is my understanding that 6.5" is definately not enough to house a mh
pendant within the canopy (which is entirely open in the back, and I can add fans to add circulation).
My canopy top has a glass top that is partitioned into two folding glass panels. This glass top is currently a tinted glass. I don't have anything over the tank itself, but may put eggcrate on it (not decided).
If I were to swap this glass on the canopy with clear glass, or perhaps just use eggcrate (wouldn't look at nice), can I put a mh
pendant suspended above the canopy, so it would be 1/2-1": above the canopy but potentially glass bet the mh
light and the tank? Or put a mh diy
pendant right on the glass or perhaps elevated by little metal legs to accomodate air exchange?
This glass top is a PIA, I wish I thought of this before making the purchase. I may wind up doing my own new canopy, or building some extentions to the canopy to raise it up a bit. Just looking at a MH
