[APD] RE: Aquatic-Plants Digest, Vol 5, Issue 38
My 220W of PCF lights sit about 3" above the water
surface on my 72 gallon tank. If I take the glass off the top, there's
nothing between tank & tubes but 3" of air.
1. Is this just a stupid idea (yes, I have GCFI on the outlets)
2. Will the tudbes get etched the way the top glass does?
I do this and I haven't had any issues. I used to do it at a closer
distance and never noticed much of an issue on my lights - though I did have
to clean my reflectors every once in a while.
It's not the *smartest* thing, since a cool splash of water could burst a
hot bulb or a click could fail and drop a bulb in the water, but it's not
going to screw up your bulbs, IMHO.
