whats the best way to dissipate heat inside a tank hood using fans? have the fans pulling out out or pussing air in across the bulbs? i just shanged my lighting and now my tank is 4- 5 degrees warmer. i have 4 36w power compacts and 8 56w t5s.

I don't think 4-5 degrees is really a big deal.

Probly best if ya blow the hot air out and pull fresh air in through vents, IMO.

so i took the fans out and turned them around, so that they are blowing air across the surface of the tank and thats working very well.

Glad it's working. Are the fans all at one end or are they split up at opposite ends?
