Ballast Cooling Problems

I have a highly planted tank which is lit by 3 48" fluorescent bulbs. The 
main lighting for the tank is a 48" double fluorescent strip with internal 
ballasts. The heat from the ballasts reduces the bulb life to about a month, 
the plastic above the ballasts gets soft, and the extra heat causes the 
heater to malfunction. So I came up with a solution, which is but cheap and 
effective. I thoughts others might benefit from my experience, so I created 
a webpage with my design. The address is:

please don't hesetate to email me.
