I was also thinking that chrome would also reflect light back out of the tank and may be a bit "blinding" to viewers depending on the light source.

well as far as blinding goes i could tell people to just go sit down on the couch and enjoy :P Anyway, Reef made a good point about it being painted on, i dont see how it could be otherwise if its plastic. Well, at least it will be functional.

chrome

yes, I did think about the chrome color chipping off into the tank, or having the salt eat away at it....but it would be a good reflector...

I am going to look at what is available, not sure what I am going to do yet, but I like this idea alot.

Yea, I may even see about the metal ones. Don't know about any problems that would cause.

I just put the eggcrate on my freshwater tank today. Seems to work pretty well. I had new glass tops so the light got through good but this will keep me from having to clean them really good every week. Now the only thing keeping my tank from being brighter is all the rock stacked up to the top.
