o.k. i'm purchasing (2) 2x13watt pc kits, now the reflector is 15 dead presidents each, should i just use a mirror, i could cut pieces of mirror and cover the whole inside of my canopy for the 10 gallon.

Kinda Makes sense when you think about it......a mirror reflects EVERYTHING...and white doesn't absorb any color at all, thus reflecting it all.......even a silver reflector would absorb some light (thus giving it the silvery pigment)......never thought about white being more reflective than a metal reflector, but unless it has a mirror finish it does make sense.
