cover for pc lights needed?

Post by obsessed on Sun Jun 07, 2009 2:02 pm

I was wondering if anyone takes off the plastic covering that covers the lights so that you would get more light? Could you just cut it down to cover the ballasts to protect them and leave most of the light uncovered? any input/ideas would be great. thanks

How close are they to the water? As long as salt creep isn't getting to them I don't see an issue.

you will be fine, just try not to have a power head to close to the top cause if it were to splash on the reflectors saltwater does have the capability to eat right threw reflectors.
