    Does anyone know how to remove the lid on a boyu 550 as well as the splash cover. Also what can I use as reflector for the T5 globes?

    Do you want to replace the PL tubes?

    No I heard that you can put something behind the tubes to create more of a reflection. What can I use and how do I open it?

    We took a few apart, all just screws (but almost 1000 of them), very easy.

    If you can get a piece of alonod. That is a very highly reflective sheet.
