Default Fish tanks....

I have a 3ft fish tank that my neighbour gave me and i am going to put....some kind of reptile in it when i have played around with it for a bit....but i was wondering how i could make a full mesh top for it that a snake wouldn't be able to push off
Thanks for any help in advance

Mesh wouldn't be any good, as the unit wouldn't retain the heat. Much better to make it from conti or suchlike.

B & Q sell sofit vents quite cheap. Obviously the number of vents required would vary according to the length of tank you would be using.
