| || | aquarium hood for 40gal breeder
so i recently bought a 40gal tank through the petco dollar per gallon sale. problem is it does not come with a hood/lid. my other option was to buy a tank through the LFS which would have been $100 for the tank and lid. i have been looking through the forums about buying these aqueon glass tops that i can lay on top of my tank and cut the back out to fit my various media like filter tubes and heater cords etc. problem is when i went to the aqueon site, they didnt have a option to buy. so my questions are:
-which is a better deal? i think the 40gal without the lid is cheaper, at least right now.
-which is better to use, glass tops with a lighting fixture on top or full hoods where it is all in one?
-do you guys know where i could pick up either of these types of things? or like where i could go to get it made?
thanks so much!
