    I was a klutz and tripped over my hood while cleaning my tank. The little plastic nob hinge thing on the size that lets the lid go up and down snapped off. Is there something that will fix it or should I buy a new lid w/o the light?

    If you can get it to hold in place for a day, there isn't much that 24hr Araldite won't hold together if super glue fails. Duct tape can be used for almost anything. (I love duct tape)Failing that, just buy a new hinge. Drill it if need be & install a hinge from your local hardware store. stainless hinges will last longer.
