 The  hood  of  the  Nano  earlier  had  white  background  (white  sticker)  inside.Last  week  I  happened  to  see  this  Gift  Wrapper  and  bought  about  4  sheets.Each  sheet  costs  about  5/-.I  taped  one  sheet  inside  the  hood.The  pics  are  below.
 
 
 
 
 Before
 
 
 
 After
 
 
 The  whole  process  of  taping  the  sheet  took  about  15  min.Tho'  it  is  not  possible   to  get  smooth
 surface  while  taping  the  sheet  inside,the  light  reflection  is  better  after  the  job.
 
 Regards
 Dinesh.

 i  tried  this  an  year  ago  but  the  reflective  film  will  wearoff  due  to  excessive  condensation  on  the  inner  surface  of  the  hood.

 Neat,  The  plastic  may  melt  due  to  Heat.  I  use  food  grade  aluminium  foil  that  costs  about  the  same  but  is  more  temperature  tolerant.
 
 The  tank  looks  beautiful.  What  lights  are  you  using?

 The  beautiful  tank  is  a  14"  X  12"  X  10  "  with  Amazonia  2  substrate.  This  is  Dinesh's  first  planted  tank.
 
 Lighting  -  Two  CFL  bulbs  of  30  w  and  20  w.
 
 Co2  -  DIY.
 
 Filteration  ¬†-  A  Hang  on  filter.
 
 The  Flora  -  Glossostigma  in  most  parts.  A  very  little  riccia  on  the  right  if  you  see  carefully  (light  green).  And  Hair  grass  in  the  rear.
 
 The  Fauna  -  A  dozen  red  cherry  shrimps.
 
 There  is  a  full  thread  on  the  setting  up  of  this  Iguwami  planted  tank.

 IMO  Curmbled  Aluminium  foil  could  be  a   better  choice.
 
 However,  your  tank  looks  very  good   Thumb Up

 True.  When  you  have  a  small  tank  you  do  not  have  much  choice.  
 
 Putting  in  a  internal  filter  will  spoil  the  landscape.  External  filters  are  out  of  the  question.  For  the  water  circulation  he  has  used  a  small  HOB  with  the  minimum  output.
 
 Putting  in  CFL  bulbs  is  frowned  upon  since  they  generate  heat.  Here  again  not  much  choice.  He  has  lifted  the  hood  a  couple  of  inches  on  stilts  for  more  air  circulation  to  cool  the  tank.
 
 Regarding  DIY  Co2  this  being  his  first  planted  tank,  spending  a  couple  of  thousand  bucks  on  a  pressurized  Co2  system  for  a  small  tank  is  overstretching  anyone's  budget.
