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.

Try sunlight supply, or Hello lights for reflective materials.

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.
