The material used to make synthetic rocks is polyethylene and polyresin. Both of these materials are tough by nature. But when they are used for making synthetic rocks, they are injected with toughening substances to make sure they are resistant to cracks, scratches, and the weather. The bulb is inserted into the rock while the solar panel is attached on top of the rock. In any case, neither the bulbs nor the solar panels are in a favorable position for loosening or damage.
The next step is to remove the wire nuts from the old light fixture. You can do this by turning them in a counter clockwise direction. You will not want to reuse these when installing your new light fixture. Next remove the old mounting plate this will be attached with two screws that are attached to the electrical box. Now that you are to a clean slate you will want to make sure that you make sure that that the wires on the light fixture and the existing electrical are stripped to 3/8 of an inch. You can do this with a pair of wire strippers. Make sure to use the proper size hole to strip the wire. Next you will want to install the mount plate provided by the manufacture. Using the new mounting plate is a very crucial part of installing your new island light because this will align all the back plates and insure proper installation.
The benefits of hybrid solar lighting don't end there either. Also, hybrid solar lighting systems produce much less heat compared to traditional bulbs thereby saving on cooling costs significantly. (Note that the optical fibers of hybrid solar lighting are cold enough on their own to be touched with no risk of burning). Further, they also generate indirect sunlight in that the light received is full-spectrum instead of the narrow band of sunlight found in most light bulbs today.
If your light gives off plenty of heat, then you might need to consider a fan or cooling system. While some aquariums have fans built in the hood, that may not be enough to keep your tank the right temperature especially if you're running a large tank with a large light.
