Cooling Fan for Perfecto Hood?
I purchased a 48" dual bulb "Perfecto" hood last October, and
I've noticed quite a heat problem from the ballasts. The whole
hood gets rather warm, and while it probably isn't a safety
hazard, I'd rather cool it down. My question: How can I cool
this thing? I've thought of putting a cooling fan in it,
but how the thing is designed, there isn't really a clear path
for air to travel from one end to another. It also has 4 vents
across the top for air. Are there inexpensive ballasts that are
cooler, and that would fit inside this? I've looked into IceCap
ballasts, but they're really overkill for 2 standard 40 watt bulbs.
I'm not looking to buy a whole new light fixture, since this one is
rather new, and it fits the tank well. Thanks for any help you can
