Re: Aquarium Disaster ... Questions

The tank has a lid/light arrangement. A hasp & padlock may be the only arrangement that will keep her out of it! Now to figure out how to attach such things. ;)

Re: Got a few questions about my tank

I agree with Majerah. If *you* like your tank, that's what counts. I am personally a fan of natural, but can appreciate the *beauty* of other arrangements.

Re: I need help healing this poor little guy.

My dragons live in *lean-to* style dwellings. I purchased small-ish slabs of various rocks & pressed them into the sand, then leaned them against the glass. One of the structures is constructed...

Re: New to me 88gal Tank Build :)
