SOL in a hood?

I plan on using the AI SOL for my Nano. Every application I've seen has the unit suspended above an open tank.

 

Thing is, I really prefer to keep the tank covered. So if I cover with glass or plexiglas, will my light suffer?

use acrylic not plexi. plexi turns yellow. acrylic wont bow...or use glass. no your light will not be diminished. however you will get condensation build up. the LED will be so far away it wont burn the condensation off. i have read that the condensation actually diffuses the light and gives a better more even light dispersion for better over all par numbers...
