For those of you with painted tanks..

Equipment Review: Getting the Most from Your T-5 Lights: A Look at Reflectors and More — Advanced Aquarist | Aquarist Magazine and Blog

An interesting read. Anyone ever notice any difference in coral/invert/algae growth that corresponds to the data presented?

Just curious

Very interesting. Thanks for posting it. I'd still paint a new tank though, I don't see any data for PAR values when the back and sides are covered in coraline.

Coraline won't affect the critical angle of incidence. But it will affect the amount of light getting TO the glass.
