Mirrored background.

I have a tank (100g) that has a mirror on the back. I think I might keep it there. Are there any adverse effects (like fish running into them or seeing themselves and feeling threatened)?

Don't know about most fish but have heard of some oscars getting pretty upset with there reflection and hitting the tank with a real good thump. Enough that they hurt themselfs.

Angels, RTS, and some larger schoaling fish.... that should be it in the tank. Its a wierd kind of mirror. It is an oceanic aquarium, and has the mirror epoxy'd on the back.... I just think it would be a PITA to remove it....
