It will reduce the light for plants down below in substrate-especially if roots and never trimmed/plants are not thinned out once in a while (what I'm doing-pulling out 1/2-2/3 of the salvinia). If you barely have enough light for your plants as if you may consider using a floating tied off airline tube to create a no-grow zone like in links below (not my photos)-also makes it easier to feed fish through these areas.

Due to photobuckets bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my old photos helpful.
