Mirrored Background?

Is having a mirrored backgound bad for a tank?

Feed less...if you can. Keep the skimmer well serviced...clean it at least twice a week. Adding more LR will probably help as well. The minimum recommended is about 1lb per gallon. Once you get more LR, remove the media from the canister and use it for flow and, once in a while, run some AC in it. The filter media is a major contributor of nitrates.

Try adding some macroalgae, such as caulerpa or chaetomorpha. Macroalgae will aid in nutrient export.

Those are some strange answers to the question at hand. What happened to this post?! I thing the user accidentally changed it instead of creating a new one!

My black background looks mirrored'ish. I don't know that I'd put actual mirrors there though.
