I've got a wrought iron stand for two 20H tanks, one top one bottom. The top tank is currently a 25H (20H with a couple extra inches up top) occupied by some anthonyi. The tank has temps exactly where I want them, and is doing great! The problem comes from my potential "below" tank.
Mind you, the two tanks are in completely different places, so I'm not 100% sure this is where this tank will go, as I haven't compared it's dimensions to my 25s... this tank is originally from glass cages and I need to mearure it to see if it's the standard 30 gallon front opening (25" tall) or a custom size (basically what the height is) :roll: Right now mostly I need theory.
Assuming I can fit the tank on the bottom (where the front opening is needed for such a tall tank, otherwise I can't get in it) and the lights, I have a heat problem. Namely the fact that the tank is designed for small treefrogs, and the treefrogs going in the tank are going to need heat... I need to figure out how heat up one corner for some temp variations in the tank, and how best to keep the heat in the bottom tank and not warming up the top tank too much.
It's frustrating because it's the best, and one of the only, places I can put this tank. The TFs involved need more heat than room temp (72). I don't want to have to move the anthonyi to another tank... and if I put that tank on the bottom, I don't know if I'd have good enough access to it. I also don't really have another place to put these tanks because I have racks for the rest, and these tanks will not fit in the racks (and thus why I got the stand in the first place).
Ideas and thoughts welcome
