Looking at tank with sunglasses on

I really wish the corals would pop like they do when I'm wearing my sunglasses.

You could use a real light auto tint on the outside of your tank?

They are led 2 150 watt lights. That was only the actinics on after dusk. I just came in with my glasses on from being outside and noticed how they pop.

The sun glasses are probably just polarized lens thats why it looks better.

I realize it is because of the polarized lenses. I just wish it always looked like that though with no glasses.
