Default Re: 15H Tank build

Heres a shot of the business end of the light i guess you can say.



You might notice the outer layers of plywood wood peeling back. Its actually completely falling apart, here are some closeups of the damage.





There are more issues coming to light no pun intended. First an most obvious is that the fixture does not completely cover the top of the tank. This would be easily fixable with a piece of glass cut to size (i can cut glass myself :mrgreen: ) Side to side, it spans the entire tank but it leaves a couple inches front to back. Second, there is nothng blocking frogs or plants from touching the lamps, which get very hot. And third, there is an opening in the top of the fixture where flies would escape constantly. The opening is where the endcap wires for the lamps are run around the back of the reflector. it was tough getting a good picture of the opening.
