Will a Plexiglass aquarium cover cut down on the light to my plants
 
Hello,

I have a T5HO light set-up that sits on the top of my aquarium. One of my concerns are fish that might be prone to jumping, if I put a plexiglass cover on to prevent this "will it hurt my light distribution to my plants"? Thanks for your response....

I think it would, but to what extent only time would tell.
Perhaps there is glass company near by that could cut a piece to fit?
Or possibly some window screen found at hardware store?
