Used to just use floaters to try and get the same affect, but they're bloody hard to keep corralled. Happily, I discovered the glass canopy for a 2.5g standard tank fits perfectly across my 37g tall--glued down window screen and it's ready to slide into place to keep my java fern and anubia just that little bit less lit.

Not the usual look, but I like the extra dimension it adds.

Exactly my thought. More dimension!

Anyone else like variations in the intensity if light over a tank?

To me it looks more natural when the lighting over the tank has different intensity of illumination. It looks more natural, like perhaps there is a big tree or lim above shading some areas of a river or something. I'm going to try doing this window screen blocking different parts alon the length of the bulb. Anyone else like or do something similar?
