I would elevate both of them. I had the same problem with my plexi glass lid. When I placed the lights on the top of the wire top with the plexi glass underneath it began to melt the plex glass from the heat. I had to hang the lights from the celing with fishing line. One thing you have to take into account is the further away the light is the the less effective it is for heat. I only use the light to keep the ambiant air temps up. For my surface temps I use UTH heaters, they work much better I find then the light alone.
