When you add them in effective ways, it makes the tank look larger than it actually is. Not only that, your fish will swim around and play with their reflections. If your tank is a smaller one, mirrors can be used to add more movement overall without putting too many fish into the tank. It`s actually pretty easy to install these mirrors effectively. You simply attach one to the back glass pane or put one mirror on each end of the tank. If you mount the mirrors on the inside of the tank, be sure that any rough edges that may be present are completely smoothed away. Otherwise, you`ll risk injuring the fish if they should accidentally hit one of those sharp edges. That`s something you definitely want to avoid happening. But once the mirrors are installed correctly, you`ll love watching how much fun your fish have playing with those "new" fish that seem to have been added to their home. They can amuse themselves, and you, for hours on end just from those mirrors.
