    hey guys. ill be getting a nice tank soon, & i wanted some thoughts on a hood/light set up. should i get a glass lid (hinged) & then just find a good light to set ontop of it for heating & such? will the heat damage the "hinge"? id love to find a hood that had a switch for my moonglo, & a switch for my dayglo. my cheesy hood that i have now, has one switch for both lights. i have to unscrew one bulb, & screwin the other- and visaversa. (does that sound lazy????) haha! i was searching the fotos here so i didnt have to bother folks with a request for specific fotos- but i didnt find particular pictures with hoods or lids. does anyone prefer a one piece lighted hood, over the glass hinged top & lightfixture combination? im not going for clamp lights. the new setup will be in my dining area, & i want it to look as nice as possible. any suggestions, my fellow crabbits?? thanks!! :rockz:
