I am getting a old fish tank from my friend who is getting out of aquariums. I plan on getting back into bearded dragons again when I get it this weekend. I need help or some kind of ideas for closing the top of the tank. I have attached a photo of the top of the tank. It has 2 openings. Currently glass tops would go there. But of course that isnt going to work for me with lighting and all that for my bearded or for letting heat and airflow. Ive already decided that I am probably not going to go with long lights with ballasts because I feel like it is going to melt the plastic from the heat. I know there is one there already but aquarium lights dont put out much heat so the plastic in the middle does not melt. So i need to figure out some way to make a wire top so I can put a ballast on the top for heat lamp etc. Any Ideas on how to attach this for easy access for feeding and such.
