I never have had a glass top or canay on my tank till I got the MH lighting. Then I had to build one for the tank.trreherd said:I still have a few questions before i order the last amount of stuff i need for my tank.
Do i need a hood? What kind? will the hood effect my lighing?
Do i need a powerhead? were should i position in? how much flow?
Yeah it definately won't affect your lighting much. A ton of reefers use this.caferacermike said:Not really TR. It's better then an acrylic or glass top. Call a lighting specialty shop and you can get the eggcrate chrome plated for what HDeopt charges for the white. That will help to reflect the light back down.
