I built a canopy with doors in it when I started my tank. it is about 18 inches tall X the width and length of the tank. The lighting unit is hanging from the top of the canopy. I painted it white to help reflextion on the light to go down into the water. I was thinking what about flashing. do you think that would work better? will in rust being so close to salt water? It there a reflective material like a mirror that I can use that will not rust? It will be inclosed so it doesn't have to be pretty, but I do want to be price cautious.
When I ordered my MH's it came with a reflector. Its something like a german aluminuim
Try sunlight supply, or Hello lights for reflective materials.
I put up aluminum flashing about 10 min ago.
Aluminum won't rust. Is it highly polished? The German polished AL is really reflective.
FYI. There are tests floating around that suggest a nice gloss white surface reflects as much as a polished aluminum/mirror like finish.
