    Right now I have a 29 gallon Aqueom tank and I'm planning to purchase a Current Satellite Pro LED. I'm also planning to purchase African dwarf frogs for the tank. However I've heard people say that frogs tend to jump out of the tanks so I need a lid. What lids do people recommend I purchase that works with this LED?

    The Aqueon Glass Versa top is usually the best bet. I have them on all my tanks. Just don't drop them! I have a puncture wound on the top of my foot to show you why!

    Thanks! Question though, do I put the LED on top or below the lid?

    You get the top...and you'll have the glass of course that is joined by a flexible rubber hinge. That way you can open and close the lid for maintenance and feeding. The LED light just goes on top of the glass. Periodically, you;ll need to clean the glass to rid yourself of mineral deposits from the water that splashes up on the glass. I use white vinegar on a paper towel and that eats it right off. There will be a plastic attachment that goes on the back of the glass that seals the tank in the rear. You will need to cut that with a pair of scissors to fit around any filters or tubes.

    Thanks for the pictures! I do have to ask though, I use an AquaClear 70 filter. Doesn't that mean that I have to keep some of the lid opened in order to fit in the filter? Wouldn't that give frogs a means to escape?

    Make it a tight fit and shouldn't be a problem!! you have a cat? He'll find them if one of your frogs gets out!
