I dont want to build a hood. I hate the way they look.
I found a solution. Some rubberized shelf liner with lots of mesh
blocks the majority of the light into the room but lets the light
into the tank be unhindered. No back piece plus the mesh lets
the heat out (so far). I got the idea from a LFS
and I like the
look of it. So far, the wife likes it too.
Cheap and effective! SCORE!
