[APD] Tight fitting hoods

I'm wondering if it is safe to enclose my lighting system inside a tight 
fitting hood to reduce evaporation and heat loss.

I have two 48" fluorescent bulbs with the push-on end caps, powered by 
electronic ballast.

What I worry about is moisture corroding the end cap connections, and 
possibly the bulbs shattering and falling into the tank.  Currently, 
they are above the tank and are separated by the removable plex that 
separates the two. The wooden cover just hides the bulbs, wires, and 
other nasty stuff you don't want to see.

If I was to make a tight waterproof cover that encases the bulbs, can I 
safely run this without damaging everything.

I'm trying to slow down the evaporation and heat loss.
