Well, I have definately decided to get a BD, and I really need some help designing my tank! I am still undecided on the substrate, and most everything else!

I can design fish tanks as they are very very simplistic, but I need some help with my first reptile tank. I know that it needs to be at least 4 feet long, but thats about it! I dont know the following for a year old BD and up:
- Appropriate Length/Width/Height
- Substrate depth
- How to make a hood?
++++Do I buy one of those hoods from ReptileDirect.com?
++++Do I get a screen top and mount the lights onto there?
- What kind of lights do I need?
- What wattage for the tank?
- How do I mount the lights onto it where I can still get to the tank?


Ahh! Sorry I still have a lot of questions! If you can help or provide a link that will help that would be great!

Thanks and God Bless!
