Metal Halide Lighting in Open-Top Canopy…Overheating Issue?

0

I am in the process of setting up a 75 gallon reef tank and would appreciate your advice on lighting. <> I have a 24″ Aqualight Pro HQI light system in my garage from a previous tank. It is 150 watts metal halide and 130 watts of fluorescent actinic. I am considering the purchase of another of the same and using both on the tank. <> I plan on building a cabinet/canopy above the tank about 4′ tall. <> The cabinet will not have a top; that way air will be able to circulate. <
