i have a 15 watt florecesnt blub and it goes across the mid section of the tank top which also has a peice of plexi glass. so my question is, would the plexi glass melt or change shape if i leave it on for 12 hours and more? my tank is made out of plexi glass thanks. is it bad for the tank?

I seriously doubt that plexiglass will melt from a flouressant light.

I disagree.. I had a 55 gal tank, with the lights hardly on ever. I guess within time and heat emmitting from the water, the back part of the plexi became warped.

Most tank lids are made of plastic that is thinner and more apt to melt than plexy. I whouldn't worry.
