Hi,

I am having a custom enclosure built from my Moroccan Uro. She's only a baby now (6 months old), but I want something that will last her life time (figuring she'll top off at 18 inches at most).

Length dimension will be 5 feet.
Depth will be 3 feet.

The only thing I'm struggling with is in terms of dimensions is the height.

1. Assuming the heat lamps will be on the OUTSIDE top, how how should the tank be? Is 18 inches to high from top to bottom?

2. Regarding lamps--how many do I need for an enclosure of this size, and what wattage? Note that the tank will be in my loft where it never gets below 78 degrees, so I don't have need for night time heat. I am currently using a single 100 watt mega ray for my much smaller tank.
