Lights and Water

For longevity I recommend a cover. You also get the benefit of no jumping fish, less evaporation and holding heat in. Over long periods of time I think moisture could affect a fluval flight. For sure it'll affect a finnex light in not much time at all.


@AnjumI think you'll just end up buying anew light with no cover after like 4-6 months. So instead I think the path forward is retrofitting it with some DIY type lights or buying an led light to replace it.  You can also line the inside of your light with foil, or foil tape, this would improve it a little bit as well. Also fluorescent lights typically get replaced once a year because they put out quite a bit less light as they live on.
