as you all know my tank is around 16, 17 or 18 gallons,it is a 2 foot tank, anyway, 2 weeks ago i had bought a light for my tank, 2 foot light, plus that light was made for my tank, fit perfically. i have 5 plants in the tank( live plants ) and they looked fine 1 week ago, but now are burnt!!!, i keep my light on for about 8 hours a day, and my fish try 2 hide from the light, can they be burned?, what do i do?, have i bought a light that is toooo strong for my fishies?

How deep is the tank? Are the plants totally submerged or not?

Have you checked you don't have a stray electric current? Your sockets need to be grounded with a circuit breaker. Fish should not really be hiding from light I think-may be something else going on.
