Does condensation on the glass canopy affect light penetrating?

Hi Guys,

I have a quick question.
does condensation on glass canopy affect light from penetrating into the tank?

I ask is because I will be having live plants.

Much Thanks,
Patricia

Yes to some degree it will reflect back some of the light. Just to note. The glass without condensation also reflects light. Not sure how it will effect plants but the answer is yes it will reflect light.
