IDK how much exactly you would loose. It isn't something I ever concerned myself with.

The eggcrate distorts the light, not pleasant to look at. If you're a DIY person than making a top from alluminum screen frame and clear vinyl netting is the way to go.

You could always just run it open too, I used to run 99% of my tanks that way, the one I had a flasher wrasse in was the only one I used a top on.
