    I'm putting them into a hood that is closed on the back....but I'll add three fans....I'm thinking two on the back (close to the bottom of the hood) blowing in and one on the top pulling air out. Either that or three blowing in. The bulbs will be about 7-8" above the surface of the water...

    Still looking for some people within reasonable driving distance that want to split an invert/fish order from this site!
