It certainly is a cool thing to see! I caught my boyfriend with my "fish mirror" upstairs. Upon questioning why he had it, he sheepishly admitted, "I was playing with the fish and came back upstairs and forgot I had it..." He's 23 and quite mature. It was cute!

I just bought some little accent mirrors from hobby lobby - the little ones for adding to mosaics - and hold them against the glass. But they could easily be taped on.

I was going to just sink one into the sand but I'm paranoid as to what might be in the silvering that could contaminate the tank.
