Also, I need to know what type and strength of bulb is needed for this basking light - and how far to position it above the basking area. And, does it work if it's shining THROUGH the plexiglass on top of the tank - or do I need to switch to a screen top....

It's all starting to sound like a very expensive proposition to get the new tank/filter/stand (although it doesn't have to be an official tank stand as long as they physics of the weight work out properly. Hood. Full-spectrum fluorescent tubes (which I use now).

All this is an incredible strain on us financially as I've been unemployed for 3 years.

I can try Craigslist, but one never knows if one is getting a tank in good (meaning never going to leak) condition, or if it comes with a filter if that filter is indeed in working condition.

I wonder about eBay, since there are slim pickings for 75 gallon tanks in Craigslist in my search to date..

Pet stores charge an enormous markup compared to any other means of securing goods...

And I'm still wondering about this breeder tank versus standard tank issue.
