hi! i’m going to be painting my bedroom this weekend and absolutely do not want my beardie breathing in the paint fumes so i’m planning on moving her to the garage just for a few days. her glass tank would be too heavy to carry up and down the stairs so i figured i’d make a temporary little set up with a 50 gal sterilite tub but i am stuck on figuring out what use as a lid. i need something that’s sturdy and won’t melt from the heat of her basking light. thank you for any replies!

If the tub is tall enough you may not need a lid. You could suspend the lights overhead using adjustable lamp stands. Otherwise I'd pick up some metal screen (or even chicken wire) from a hardware store and build a frame around it to use as a top.
