Turtle tank setups and other indoor configurations.

The water in the tank is about 12 in deep. I have a piece of cork bark wedged in one side, under a uvb heat lamp. My problem is that I can't see into the tank as well as I'd like, especially under the basking area. What are suggestions for lighting in this situation?

The simplest and cheapest would be something like these. You can find some in a single , double or triple ... Would depend on size of tank and what you want. You put the light exactly where you want.

Any other accent or stripe lighting could help if you are very creative on placement.

I just put the light in and it's exactly what I was looking for. I may end up getting a second one when I "redecorate". Thanks again!

Is this a glass or acrylic tank? You can mount the LED strips on the outside.
