Just my dimes worth but I think having a glass canopy over the water has too many benefits to ignore even though it's something that requires cleaning here and there...
-> Reduces evaporation and the need to top off with RO/distilled or other water.
-> Prevents losing any potential jumpers.
-> Protects expensive lighting components.
Besides, <rhetorical> are you really too lazy to clean some glass once a week? <snicker>
Btw Admin, 'Algae Grower' under my handle!?!?! I represent that (In my best Norm Crosby)
