Forgot to mention the tank sizes.

- - Top Center: 30gal. Long
- - Bottom Center: 30gal. Long
- - Left / Right: 40gal. Breeders, or 40gal. Tall

I am leaning toward the Breeder tanks, because of the additional room for land and water. However, I was thinking about using the Tall aquarium tanks because this will create a better cosmetic balance, as the tanks will be closer to the same heights.

To add more balance to the height, I was going to strip the top plastic rims from the side tanks, and create a lexan spacer. While the hood that covers all of the tanks would cover about 2in. of the top / center terrarium. Likewise, the base will be flush with the bottom of the plastic trim on the side tanks, while covering 2in. of the bottom aquarium.
