Hey, my name is Asael and this is my first post. I have been studying on dendroboard more than I have ever done in school lol :D. I am currently building a custom vivarium from some of my old kitchen windows that i had to tear down. The dimensions of the vivarium are 28Lx30Wx20H and i am hoping to get some thumbnails when i am done building it. My question is what kind of lighting should i use for the vivarium, the only problem is that i want to be able to see through the top glass. Is there some kind of lighting i could possibly hang from the ceiling to be close enough to the vivarium that it will be able to light up my vivarium without it covering the top glass? If there is any what kind should i use? Please help! and Thank You for your time.

In my opinion the glare from the super high-intensity lights you'd need to keep the light that far away on a small tank would be enough to make me not want to do this.

Reminds me of the sunken garden vivarium with it's lighting hanging a few feet high:

Granted that had natural light to, but still. You want to keep the light up high for more viewing area?
