I would be equally concerned about completely covering a SW tank. Not a good idea for gas exchange and PH. Just my $.02

Well...there are other light fixtures out there that do have the moisture resistant endcaps and are designed to go over open top tanks. I personall built my canopy and lighting system. I had a 260w PC fixture that worked well but I wanted high ligh SPS corals and it just didn't have the power. There are a lot of options out there you just have to look around. Ebay is a great place to find awesome deals, also check out craigslist.com You can sometimes find aquarium stuff there.
