condensation trays

Hi there, new the the website and had a question i wanted some advice on..

i have a 4ft tank and a basic plastic condensation tray.. but am now trying re-stock the tank and make it well.. better.

it seems hard to find glass trays in ANY pet shops or garden centers that specialise in fish, it makes me think maybe there's a down side i'm not thinking of?

any views would be appriciated

Hi Ash, and welcome to Tropical Fish Keeping.

I'm a bit unsure of this condensation tray; maybe you could explain more of what it is for or why it is needed?

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

basically a plastic (or glasss tray) that sits on top of the aquarium to stop the water evaporating and protects the light ect from water
