The overstocked tank was fun for a while, then it collapsed while I was on vacation. ...

I wouldn't assume anything about being taken care of. For instance, while I may have a receipt, I never bothered to register the warranty - who registers a simple heater? Well, if they DO take...

That's a really lovely tankscape- but your lighting set up does it no justice.

Tank cross bars?

Anyone know where I can get adjustable, locking crossbars for 29 gallon tank? or any tank for that matter?

FWIW, they would be used to mount a light over the tank.
