Default Long tank

Anyone had any success with longer tanks and one light? I'm using LECA and the waterfeature is being a pain. What do you all use to hold the LECA back to get the pond? The LECA just rolls right back. I've tried stones and gravel with no luck.
I've got an old light that I had for my iguanna and am thinking of just using that. O yeah, I would replace the bulb.
Any suggestions?

how long do you mean by long tank and what kind of light?
one 4 foot flourescent light could work in a long tank. i doubt a single compact flourescent would.

as for the pond, you could try making a box with sloped sides (like a square cone shape) out of eggcrate to hold back the leca. then loosly silicon gravel to it, while being sure to leave plenty of small gabs to let the water threw but not frogs or possible tads. or what about larger rocks? by larger i mean big enough to go from the tank bottem to the top of the leca.

Its a 3 foot long tank. The only problem I have with a four foot shop light is that it will over hang way to much and its right by the bed. I have my journal going in the members frogs and vivs. I'll have to find some larger rocks to hold it back. I can't find eggcrate around here.
