With some fairly strong wire mesh attached to the top in a hinge fashion you could create a lock at the front and simply place some basking lights and a UV tube on top of the enclosure.... Argh! It could look awesome!! You must at least consider the option of being able to see tunnels and nests that the rest of us don't really have the opportunity of doing...
I'll be watching this thread, this could go so many ways it'll be fascinating to see what you do...
Thanks for your input, I'm still entertaining all options and am in no rush.
Can you give me more info on "ackies" cos I don't have a clue what your talking about...
Do you have any links to pics of setups so I can get inspired.
Didn't get round to measuring up this afternoon but I did get the tank drained and fish rehomed back out in the pond.
Ps. I should add that another factor in choosing the ideal species would be colour. Not for my benefit ,some of my fave fish I kept were dull brown things most peeps wouldn't look twice at. But my daughter just coming up to a 1 year old would appreciate the more colourful species.
