Terrariums?

I'm such a spammer...i've started like 12 threads this week haha...

ANYWHO onto the title topic...I'm gonna be getting a nice big glass jar soon and beginning a terrarium...i think i'm gonna make it semi-aquatic and get a couple snails...

anyone have any suggestions on setup/etc? also I was debating wether I want aquatic snails or land snails...if i choose non-aquatic, any ideas on where i could possibly get some?

No clue for the snails, but I know anubias grows BIG and pretty when partially submerged..Sweetaquatics.com sells a bunch of plants that grow well in that set up :<

Try getting a little bowl, and then covering the rim with the soil, so you can't see it!

I don't know what you could put in it though... lol....some bugs? A little tiny TINY lizard? LOL
