    Default Cleaning plexiglass light covers?


    0 Not allowed!
    Something I never really thought about until now, but does the salt buildup on the plexiglass covers affect power compact light output? Should they be cleaned off regularly? If so is there a way to clean it without scratching the plexiglass?

    29 gallon-planted community

    20 long frag tank
    75 gal-planted goldfish

    75 gallon mixed reef with 20 gallon sump

    Lol, I know I don't need RO water, I just prefer to use it as it leaves nothing behind and can with a little buffing give a nice polished look.
