In many styles, when a sky image is not visible, the water and shallow water semi-transaprently overlays an image over the top of it. It doesn't appear to be consistent between styles. For example Caldera seems to use the "soft wall" image for its deep water while most tend to use the pit image. And aboveground seems to use the dirt image for its shallow water while forest is using alternate floor? It's a bit tricky to tell sometimes so hopefully those are correct.

If making my own style, where do I choose which image I want to be used as the reflection?

By default deep water is overlaid with %StyleName%Pit texture, unless there's a %StyleName%DeepWater texture present, in which case it chooses that one. For shallow water the textures are %StyleName%Dirt default, and %StyleName%ShallowWater.

Thanks DezzTech! Should have guessed it would have been something like that.

Fun fact: did you know that this feature originally was added (and used!) in GatEB?

I didn't. Just had to check for the wiki and found out literally 5 minutes ago.
