My friend, Derick, has a 75g reef tank with a canopy...he has a 6x55w kit, and wants to know how many 4" fans will he need and where to place them?

OK I got a little help on this one.

Quote:
The quanity will depend on how powerful the fan is.
One could be enough.
That said, it should blow air out from the hood and above the lights and as close to the top of the hood as possible. (heat rises Wink )

A vented hole opposite the fan on the other side of the hood will draw air in
