Odd Duck Posted August 31, 2022 Share Posted August 31, 2022 I’ve been trying to come up with a good way to block light between shelves of my racks and even bought some black Coroplast, but so far I haven’t decided on exactly how to hang it so I can lift it fully out of the way when needed. I think I’m going to end up with a hook and eye arrangement so the sheets can be lifted up a full 180 degrees and latched up with another hook or something. Maybe magnets to hold it up? I’ve got some left over that aren’t going to work well for the project I bought them for (not quite strong enough for that but might work for this?). I currently have black window film hot glued to the shelf above each set of lights (which are fastened to the bottom of the shelf above each set of tanks) but the hot glue is coming loose and I don’t have a good way to hold the stuff up out of the way when working in the tanks. PITA! Plus not attractive, “clean”, or “professional” looking at all. I think I can make the Cloroplast look a lot better, it’s very light weight, and what I bought should be enough for both racks. I need a good idea for how to hold it up and would like a better idea for how to keep it as tight to the rack as possible but still allow it to “hinge” fully up and out of the way. Now I just need to figure out how make a good light shield for my other tanks. I’ve got thin strips of the window film hot glued to the fronts of the lights. This is fine from a distance but not really impressive closeup. All thoughts and ideas welcome, but I need the CARE think tank on this! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
