    ok so i have this weird white light coming from the inside the rock. It's at a bad angle but i'm able to tell that it's a small amount and not the entire area is lit up, just a small sliver, i don't know what it is, or how long i've had it, i took some pictures, it's hard to get a clear shot, but i'll upload them to my computer to see if any turned out, i'm also not sure if it's there when lights are out, but right now it's there.

    Any suggestions? Can rock be reflective at all?

    Do you have a sump with a light on it? I had something similar happen to me and it turned out a powerhead had blown a hole in some sand in the back of the tank making the fuge light shine up from inside the stand into the tank.

    here it is, i don't know if the light is hitting it, but i don't think the rock can reflect from the light, my dad says because it's a tunnel that the light shines through the rock and makes it light up, but then my other holes/tunnels would be doing the same thing so i don't think it's that.

    oh please mind the GHA
