Hex 28 Gallon Hood. 70 watt light Tank pics

Here are some pics of what I made to hold my AH supply 2 x 36 watt light kit.
I had to build it to fit them in the hood. Today was the best my tank has looked in weeks. I threw out my 2 snails today (eating plants I think) and just running 3 chiese alge eaters , 5 greeen cory cats, 5 Black ruby barbs and 3 goramies.

Nice hood, but I think you might need some ventilation. Those light get warm and if they don't get ventilation and get too warm their liftspan will diminish.
