What is the length of a brew belt? I don't need one to go around a carboy but do need it to go around a toilet tank to keep it from sweating and ruining my hardwood

You might be able to get an insulated tank from a plumbing supply.
Or if you can find some 1/2" styrofoam sheets, wrap the inside of your tank.

try an aquarium heater if that does not work.

Yea, and once you flush the heater will quit do to being out of water. Thought of that already

Don't know if it is a common solution or even a good one but I have heard of doing a hot water flush. Probably a pretty easy plumb if you have a newer home with PEX and a Hot/Cold manifold.

Use a can of spray foam on the inside of the tank; however, I'm sure it would be a terrible mess if you're not careful.
