    Each bulb is usually used for each 2x2 feet of the waters surface so your a little over but these numbers are used as a minimum so you should be FINE.

    are these cool touch hoods not set up to except fans already Derik? I have not seen one of these close up or hands on so I can't offer advise on fan setup when using them. Maybe someone with hands on experience can chime in with useful info.

    You should have the fans pushing air out from the front to the back of the canopy this has worked best for me, some people like to have 1 sucking air in and one pushing it out, i tried this but i didn't like the results,

    Why are you downsizing !! Ar eyou going to go reef ?

    Will the air coming out from the back affect the dry wall?
