I can't help it with all my animals. I grew up with every animal imaginable, including Pigs, Turkeys, Ferrets, Guinea Pigs, Gerbils, and Squirrels. And my uncle had an 18 year old Burmese Python, he have had since he carried it home in a toddler sock! Keeping animals is in my blood.

Just my animals: 0.2 Cornsnakes, 0.2 Bearded Dragons, 1.0 Water Dragon, 0.2.1 Crested Geckos, 1.0 Tiger Salamander, 2.0 Anoles, 0.0.2 Red Eared Slider Turtles, 0.0.1 Map Turtle, 0.0.1 Hermit Crabs, 1.0 Hamster, 1.0 Rabbit, 0.1 Horses, 2.2 Dogs, 0.2 Cats, Chickens, Ducks, Oscar Tank, Planted Bowl, 2x 10 Gallon, 2x 0.5 Gallon, 5 Gallon, and Planted 25 Gallon Tank....Is that it?

Lol. Same here. I grew up with rodents of all types. Mice, gerbils, hamsters, rabbits. I love them. They are a lot of fun.

Yes they are. It gets to me every time, when I find someone doesn't think a rat makes a good pet.

The five gallon vibe is strong. And I have another light fixture. Tee Hee!

Same as the bowl. 13 watt 6500K coil bulb. Just set if up lol. I have a piece of wood from my cichlid tank, some java moss and an old java fern in it.

All my rats have P names. Penelope, Panthea, Pearl, and Pumpkin.

You could get some amazing growth with that bulb.

And where are the pics of said tank?

Nice on the rats. We had Frankie, Sammy, and Dean, but Frankie died, and my fiancee was allergic to Sammy and Dean. So we got rid of them. She is not allergic to this one though, I wonder why.

Looks good.

Is there any way to center that light over the 5 gallon, and maybe drop it down a few inches? Looks like the light level in the tank is a bit low maybe.

This is only temporarily for this tank. I will eventually. I am going to build something to hold or get my other fixture back from my parents. And hang a chain from either the ceiling or the wall.

Got ya. What type of fixture is it?

And if you don't want to DIY a stand for the dome lamp you can use one of these Lamp stands. That may be a bit more expensive, but it would mean you would not need to drill holes in your wall or ceiling. That is always a plus.

No problem.

I was asking about the fixture you said you had to get from your mom's house.
