Glass covers under canopies.

Hi all,

I am putting the finishing touches on a custom canopy for my 75g, (thanks
to George and others for the plans and ideas). It will have two 48" shop
lights in it, with the ballasts located in the cabinet beneath the tank
(can you say "massive-trunk-o-wires"?).

My question is, will I need some kind of glass (plexiglass) cover over
the tank to keep the moisture off the lights? I am not using waterproof
end caps. What are the experiences of other DIY canopy folks?

Happy 1997.
