Habitat - Indoor :: Stock tank basking light

Turtle tank setups and other indoor configurations.

I'm moving my turtle inside into a stock tank and plan to build her a basking platform like this...

This may take a while because I also have 3 young kids, which make it difficult to complete projects in a timely manner.

In the meantime, I am getting a uva/uvb bulb on Amazon. Can anyone recommend a stand or clip that will clip onto the side of a Rubbermaid stock tank, and later can be used with the basking platform?

Thanks in advance for any/all suggestions!

The ones that work the best IMO hang from the wall or ceiling using a plant hook or something similar. That way you can adjust the height pretty easily. They also have adjustable stands too, like this: https://zoomed.com/reptile-lamp-stand/ It has a flat base which tucks under the tank to hold it down, but the tapered base of most stock tanks might make that hard. A couple of bricks would solve that problem too.
