Hi all,

I was just wondering - why haven't anybody used mirrors as reflective media for lights in an aquarium??

Just pondering...

I think its because by the time the light has gone threw all the glass its lost alot of power, so when it finaly reflects its lost to much power

They also tend to peel from the humidity.

it works imo, got a panel at the back of my mantis tank to reflect some light back and not on the wall

yeah was just wondering :) Am thinking of modifying my f/w tank - only have two T8's and want to replace those, along with a new hood, to fit the lights in - maybe use mirrors for reflecting the light :) [apparently u do get mirrors that don't peel?]
