Mirror back tank

Mirror back tank OK or not OK? Will it drive the fish crazy?

Maybe only a little crazy,

on the plus side, it will make the tank look deeper, and increase your light intensity in the aquarium!

Go for it, I've been considering doing the same!

I wouldn't. It will stress the fish thinking that there is some other dominant fish in the tank while the fish fights its own reflection. It is a good way to catch a fish, yes, but otherwise, no.

To Reef Central
I wouldn't either. My clowns go crazy at their reflection in the glass let alone a mirror

I've spent a lot of money on booze, women and fish. The rest I just squandered.
