Re: [APD] lights/cover
Relevent? Why sure!
I assume we're talking about flos and not MHs. I wouldn't
expect eggcrate to hold up well if close to an MH bulb.
Eggcrate probably isn't necessary over the entire tank top
just to support the lights. One might acheive the same
results with some well-placed strips of acrylic. But the
eggcrate is probably chaper to obtain.
