    Hi Chris,
    What is under the light itself?Looks kinda dangerous with straw around it.I would think something like a fish tank air pump would be safer.You would have to hang the pump itself as it may get hot,but instead of heat it would be air that circulates the water.You would have to get a lot of tubing and tees,but they are cheap.Plus you only have the one unit to contain the heat from the the pump.I am just a little leary about the heat source.Just my thoughts.
    In N.H.,Tony.
