If you are unable to get the results you want with the hood as it is, let me
also throw in my plug for AH Supply. I have a 2 x 36 watt retro kit in their
20 inch basic black hood and it works great. As a matter of fact, I have had
to raise it about  8 inches above water it was so intense. the AH canopy has
a large open area between the top slats of wood, so there is a lot of heat
dissipated thru them.

On your present canopy, have you considered a micro fan (computer type)
mounted to the back part (/) per your illustration above pulling air up and
out? It wouldn't be visible that way and I bet it would do an excellent job
evacuating the heat.
