Reflective inserts for flourescent strips
Does anyone have experience using any products that are meant to increase
output of a flourescent? That Fish Place has Coralife/Energy Savers "Aqua
Mirror" polished anodized aluminum, which looks about the same angular shape
as a flourescent strip. This shape, A H Supply claims on their web site
(http://www.ahsupply.com/36,40,or.htm) actually causes light to be reflected
back onto the bulb (restrike). Of what use would better reflecting material
be if it reflects back on the bulb? And it appears that also depends on the
bulb's distance from the housing material. That Fish Place also sells
Aquarium Products "Triton Brite Lites" which I believe is made to fit close
or on the lamp, and the "Triton Enhancer", which looks about the same as the
Aqua Mirror. Arizona Gardens sells Bioplast Aluminum Clip-On Reflectors,
which they describe as "Light Enhancers for fluorescent tubes, offer 50% more
light intensity, concave shape that clips on the fluorescent tube".
Thanks for any info . . .
