Might make any fish more aggressive.

Hi alrmc4,

If it is something that you would possibly like... then do it. Life's too short.

Set it up so that it isn't permanent (in case you change your mind) then see how you like it, see how your fish like it....
You can always change it, when you come up with a new idea.

I had a 75g oceanic SW FO for along time with a mirror afixed to the back glass and I never had a problem, but I can see how some fish might go bonkers trying to fight themselves.

What I did for the back of my tank was use a piece of 1/4 plywood, cut to the size of the back, bought some dark green patterned self-stick floor tiles and adhered them to the wood. This setup then can slide behind the tank from one side and fits just right between the hood and the stand. It seems to reason that you could try to use some reflective material one one side and if it isn't what you want or the fish freak, slide it out and use another color till you find one you like.
