The semi aquatics look great and help water quality.

yeah that's the one i'm gonna get too. i was asking my boyfriend about drilling a hole and decided it would be difficult to do without breaking it. our other options we came up with were to either make a collar out of styrofoam or acrylic to put between the top and jar with cord notches in them or, to make a bamboo fountain/filter/hood combo.it will be low flow. i just need to find the right light for it now. it would be cute to get the one gallon and the two gallon side by side.

Cool. Do you mean drilling through the lid or the jar itself? I obviously wouldnt drill the glass, but I've drilled through metal jar lids for various setups that I forget what they are now lol. IDK which size Ill get (1 or 2 gallons), I guess first Ill have to see if we can go to Walmart and if they have them.

Not yet, but Im at my dad's on wednesday until monday, so hopefully I'll start in that time period. Sorry I haven't posted anything lately. I actually may try to look around my house for a big plastic container to use, just because marimo is EXPENSIVE where I go to, and I don't have a TON of money for this (only $50, which is a decent amount, but marimo are like $9 at Petsmart and $25 at my LFS). My main struggle is what EXACTLY I'll be using for a tank/container, because I'll need a cover, but a cover that has or Id be able to add holes in it for air and semi-aquatic plants.

Yeah I'll try that. I did the math though and I actually probably can afford to buy a tank (a cool glass cube I found is $15, the marimo at Petsmart is $8, and a glass shrimp is about $0.37, leaving me with about $25 leftover, so I actually will have more money than I thought). Also, I plan to start this project soon, but I'll make a new thread for it, just so more people can see the full thing.

Oh, and I forgot the cost of food for the shrimp. Either way, I'll still have money leftover which will maybe go toward some semi-aquatics.
