New tank question

I just got a 2.5 gallon frame from petsmart with a glass cover. How can I add the heater and filter without lifting the cover? I was also thinking about cycling it for shrimp. What do you thimk?

What I've done with those tanks is make custom tops out of vinyl or plastic placemats. Just get some mats at the dollar store or wherever and cut out some holes that would fit whatever you want, and keep the glass lid for emergencies (whatever they may be!). Don't make them too big, or there might be a jumping risk. I used the glass lid for a template.

Like this:

As for cycling, 2.5's don't really need to be cycled. But I would stand the water overnight.
