LED+ directly over water
New tank, new to aquariums, bought the LED+ for a 45gal freshwater tank. It's old so no parts and pieces.
My plan was to get some lexan or plexy or something and cut out around the hoses, a handle for easy removal.
Do I need glass under the light? Or can it rest against the aquarium edge directly over the water (where some evaporation will keep it moist)? I.e. does it need air circulation?
In the photo you can see that it is NOT standing on the feet, those are to the side, instead it's directly on the plastic trim.
The reason I want this is to cut down on glare -- with glass under it, and it standing high, the tank viewed from above has a great deal of glare from the reflection of the lights. It's much more pleasant from the above/front as above, but I don't want to damage the light?
