In Reply to: Some regular pics and enclosure pics, anything missing??? posted by jack7777766 on April 24, 2003 at 14:19:59:
Don't take this wrong, but I always strongly suggest having the set up ready before the uro gets to it's new home. Ok, enough said. Judging by the picture, I'd say that one of those tops you mention, will greatly cut down on the ventilation of the tank, especially since you said there wouldn't be enough area to put the heat light. On Runako's temporary tank, which is 2x2x2, the small 18" light sits diagonally to allow for both basking lights (100 and 150 watt zoo meds) as well as adequate ventilation. Those "hoods" that hold lights usually cover great areas, as they are usually meant for fish aquariums, and would cut down the ventilaion needed. I'd definately get the UVB set up right away by means of some kind of fixture, as well as making sure he is getting his calcium suppliments. Flourescent bulb fixtures are usually pretty cheap at your local hardware store. Just as a referrence, I want to "retire" my 24" UVB bulb to the smaller tank, and get a 36" bulb/fixture for the long 48" tank. I don't think the 18" is all that adequate for any uro enclosure.
