I have a 90 litre (about 23 gallon) rimless tank.
It's 90 cm long and 32cm wide (that's about 35 inches long and 12 inches wide)
I'd like to replace the cheap-and-nasty black plastic hood with a glass lid, (because I think it will look nicer) but I've got some questions I hope someone can help with?
I have a HOB
filter so I'm planning to cut the glass narrower than the width of the tank, so there's a strip open all the way along the back. I also don't like the idea of completely closing the top because that might restrict oxygen reaching the surface of my water. Does that sound like a reasonable plan?
At the moment my light is a tube that is clipped inside the hood. What are my options for lighting with a glass lid? My husband suggested cutting a pvc
pipe in half to place the light inside and lifting it off the glass a bit with feet of some kind?
Are there lights that you can clip onto the side of the tank or something similar?
I have plants, but only low-light ones.
