Looks nice! I (correction, my boyfriend) wired up my cover's LEDs two days ago. Will post pics sometime tonight! Just waiting for 48 hours for the silicone to dry fully.

Not the fanciest work BUT the light is nice!

Update on the same bowl. Added more substrate to keep roots down and rearranged. Looking good!

The bowls look beautiful!

@Briz- I can't tell from the pictures, but I would be careful if those leds are directly over the water without anything between the lights and the water. I had led lights directly over a tank and the condensation corroded the led sockets, ruining the lights. They never worked again. It's a cool idea, though.

A second piece of glass with a cut up mousepad, for a thin lining around to aquarium seal the 2 glass pieces together, layered but the mouse pad keeps the glass from squeezing the lights. Just an idea.

I put silicone all around them to prevent that, but thanks for the warning!

Those bowls are absolutely beautiful!

I've been interested in creating a planted bowl, and was curious- what is the maintenance required? How often do you do water changes, and at what percent? Do you leave the plants alone when you're cleaning/doing water changes, or do you temporarily take them out as well? Did you use gravel, or sand Sorry, I haven't had much experience with planted tanks ^^;

I love this! I've always thought those "Biorbs" looked awesome, but they're overpriced and loud.

Where do you get these bowls? I can't seem to find anything over a gallon :S
