    I was wondering, if u are to put a little glass prism under your MH, so that the light spectrum shines into your water, then u could probably see for yourself the depth all the colours penetrate, plus it could look realy cool, ..........

    You are probably going to have to use a huuuuge prism. It wont be practical. Also the light will be split giving a rainbow spectrum and im not sure if the same intenisty of light will be maintained. I could be wrong
