Bin lid help
    #24527528 - 08/03/17 03:20 PM (3 years, 8 months ago)

My bins have a dark blue lid but it's see through can I still use it or can I only use a clear one?

If the sides are clear just set up the light on the side rather than above. Works all the same. You could also make a makeshift saran wrap lid if you really want the light above.

I have a white lid on one of my mini-monotubs; I just angle my light in from the side a bit and it seems to work fine. As far as the semitransparency of your lid, I wouldn't have a clue what effect that has on light penetrating it. Either wait for a more experienced person to answer, or angle your light through the side of your tub. Hope that helps.  :cheers:

I shine my light thru the sides too. If the sides are clear you'll be fine.

I've seen people put a window on the top of opaque (I know you said yours are translucent) tubs by cutting a square out and securing a piece of plexiglass in its place either with glue or duct tape :shrug:
