Wow thanks for all the info! I do plan on buying my tank rather than bulding it. From reading people's posts on failed attempts and financial deathtraps, I'd rather not. I think I have decided on a reptile 60 Gallon with a mesh-wire top. I just have to find a place to buy one around here :-/ Know any places online that I can order stuff from (Lights, Fixtures, Clamps, Tanks) or is it better to buy it local due to shipping?
