Cheap cold packs?

Tom from glasscages.com will make you anything you desire, but I believe they are more east coast based. You can always ask about freight shipping, as I know they have to do that for some of the...

Nope, foamboard is a great DIY material. Get a glue gun and you can make anything. Resilient to heat and LEDs don't give off any really.

I would lengthen the light shield you made previously until it solves both problems. At a certain length it will start becoming a spot-light type housing.

What about something like a white gutter. White reflects light better than anything non professional. Or like a aluminum tube for HVAC. Just cut it so its a bit more than in half. Like a "C" shape.

You can try tipping it towards the tank and putting a black background on the tank or the wall so it reduces the reflection.

Build your own led (www.buildmyled.com), or look at finnex fixtures. Tank size is important to figure this out.
