Hello everyone, a pet shop in the town i live in just recently closed. The owner was selling all his old tanks for very very cheap so i had to buy them lol. So i bought three tanks from him. the largest is 30x10x20 the second largest is 24x12x12 the last is 20x10x13 (lxwxh inches) So if i put them all on their sides bam i have three new tall tanks for phelsuma. My only problem is that if i put them on their sides the screen would be in front. What kind of lighting could i use on top of these tanks which would be glass to provide proper heat, uv, and lighting? I really do not want to mutilate these tank and put screen on the top, i'd love to keep them as is I know that UV does not penetrate glass well and a regular heat lamp would make it very very hit through the glass but i know this has been done ive seen pictures on here im sure. Any help and suggestions would be awsome!! Thanks guys!!!!
