I have a 55gallon with a center brace (so it is actually 2x24" fixtures usually) but I just bought a 48" coralife pc
strip 4x65w... My question is this... should I worry about the center brace melting or warping? is 260w enough heat to hurt the plastic? I would think it wasn't that hot because it would warp the ends too... It does have a fan on each side. Any ideas? If I am in danger of it warping/melting what should I use to surround the center brace to keep it clear from damage...
I ordered the feet to keep it off the tank itself but was hoping to use it directly on the tank til they arrive next week.
