    This is pvc board painted black? How will this eliminate shadows from the frame?

    Yes, it shouldn't block the the light I use, a full length bar it would. We shall see. If it's trash it's trashed;)

    I guess I'm just not understanding. Is this 1 of many panels or 1 for the entire tank?

    Oh, sorry, it's for a 29 gal with a black box led suspended above.

    Ok my understanding is there was eggcrate over the top before this and this replaces eggcrate. The shadow was from the eggcrate. Now I understand. I was thinking that it was to replace the aluminium framing that most people use

    This is most likely bound for the trash. It's a shame.. seems the tension of the netting is enough to pull the frame out of whack. Back to the lab.. try again..

    Pretty much any rectangular shape not crossbraced will be able to get pulled out of shape. Loosen lightly and try again.
