Thanks, guys. I should have elevated the lights as you all said from the start. I'm worried about putting any lights facing the glass now that the side of the tank has suffered so much damage. Angling the lights into the screen would have been a good idea too, Mousekilla.
My initial reaction to the breaking glass was "freak out," which included moving Marla's tank immediately to somewhere that it could stand upright, which happened to be where Huxley was situated. Huxley is now upright where Marla was (his tank is smaller), and to solve the problem of lost surface area on my desk, I've elevated Marla's tank onto a pair of plastic drawers that I put on my desk. now she'll just have to get used to being at eye-level with people, rather than being a foot or two above them, as she used to be.
