I plan to house my bettas in divided 10 gallon tanks, but the ones at WalMart don't come with a hood. I've got heating and dividers figured out, but what can I use for lighting? The lid will just be a wire mesh lid typically used for reptiles, that I plan to put plastic wrap or plexiglass partially over to keep air circulation going, but to keep heat in. So what can I use as a light source? I've heard things like light strips, but what would you suggest?
I've actually just found the perfect alternative. PetsMart sells a 10 gallon with hood and light for around $30. So in the end I spend less than it would take to renovate the Walmart take to my liking, and it's way less work. Yay! Happy medium achieved!
