I was thinking of building a miniature canopy for my little 10 gallon tank to make it look nicer and this sounds like something perfect to incorporate into my design! I've got an 18 watt actinic NO
and a 32 watt 50/50 PC
, both with fairly crappy reflectors.
Until recently, I was just using a glasstop to set my light fixtures on. Now I've got little stands holding my lights about 3" off the water. They're really crappy and need to be replaced ASAP
. Until I have the time/money to build my little canopy, I may try using this egg crate stuff to hold my lights up.
If I do this, my fixtures will be about 1" off the water....Will this cause problems with salt/saltwater getting on the lights?
