Thanks everyone for replying to my post,

1. I have recently changed my plans to include front-opening doors instead of sliding doors. This will allow for easier access and also less substrate problems. There will also be a stopper to block sand from coming out of the cage.

2. Yes, I was thinking about using flat ceramic fixtures. Can anyone post a link as to what kind of ceramic fixtures you recommend? How tall are these fixtures?

3. As for the height of the cage, I'd like to keep the height at 18 inches to allow for expansion later on, however, I could switch to 20 inches. If I use a flat ceramic light fixture, how far from the bottom can it be placed? My uro still needs basking space. If the fixture is not too tall, I might stick with the 18 inch height.

I'm only placing one halogen, one linear fluorescent, and one CHE in the tank.

What do you all think?

Thanks again for the replies,

Carl
