My canopy is 9" tall. I saw the Coralife Aqualight Pro and noticed it doesnt produce a lot of heat. I want to put a fixture inside of the canopy but if worst comes to worst, I would just set it on top. The canopy is open on the top and back but has a brace in the center, I could remove that. Which manufacture produces the best heat efficient fixture?

It is really all the same a 250 watt bulb in a coralife fixture will make the same amount of heat as a 250 bulb in any other fixture. A watt is a watt. I think that it depends on what works best for you and also it may be better to go with a DIY hood. That way you can put the lights how you want them. Good Luck, Tim
