Damaged aquarium hood #1
Hi please help if possible
I bought a 64litre interpet aquarium 2 years ago and because I didn’t get a water condenser cover the lights have just blown up today and the inside hood looks Completely ruined, I tried to buy a replacement hood but they are out of stock for the same one on the interpet site and cost the same as a new one anyway. Question is

Can I just remove the attached hinged hood altogether and buy some sort of glass/plastic cover? What would be the name for this?

Can I buy some sort of clamped lighting to attach to the aquarium? Or is this not recommended? I am really at a loss what to do but I really don’t want to get rid of my aquarium as my fish are happy and content, please help and many thanks for your answers and recommendations in advance

Dan

On tanks with no hood/lid I use a plastic condensation tray like this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-x-Supa-Co ... 5d3cec:g:REkAAOSw7aBeH1RB or a piece of polycarbonate and cut to fit, and use these to position it: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4x-Aquarium ... c5daa3:g:FWIAAOSw6Kpc7iiS For lighting something like this is good https://smile.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/ ... tle_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
