Day 3 With pothos:
Plant is still healthy. Leaves are firm and green. tiny roots are beggining to sprout. Gabe loves to play and to chill out on the leaves :) I will be inspecting this plant everyday to make sure its not rotting or polluting the water though it is my understanding that the leaves will push themselves out of the water eventually.It really gives off a rather pleasing look.

It will be interesting to see how things progress with the leaves in the water. I am going to put some in, but not the leaves - I will take a cutting & strip the lower leaves and put the stems in with the leaves hanging out.

I know from experience that roots will develop where the leaves are stripped.

Looks good so far, Alex!!!!

BTW, what size container is that?

its 1.75 gallons when filled to the brim. Right now it contains around 1.5 gallons of water. I will be upgrading next time I go to the LPS or walmart. I remember my local walmart used to sell empty 10 gallon tanks (no hood, light, or filter - just the actual tank) and If they still sell those I may get one. OR I mat get a 2-5 gallon kit. Haven't decided yet. OR i will check out the store if they have any larger containers. Im not sure if I want a filter as the tank is in my room and the water gurgling noise may annoy me when I want to go to bed. Lately ive been interested in the "Natural Planted Tank" style.

If you are interested in a 5 gal. tank kit (comes with everything but the heater), you may want to look at this tank from Wal-Mart:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Hawkeye-5-...arium/14660258

It's acrylic, $25.00 and FREE shipping to your home!!! I own two of these & LOVE them!

Another nice 5 gal. kit in glass:

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Tetra-Aqua...-Pets/12177653

$29.77 - free shipping to the store, but not to your home. I also own this one and it is a good tank, but really prefer the first one.

OOPS - just went back and looked at #2 again - it DOES have free shipping to your home!!! :)

They are still having the $1./gal sale for just tanks at either petco or petsmart.....so a 10g would only be $10.00

Thanks for the info. If I see the 10 gallon for $10 I'm definately going to get that. That's a pretty good deal. Plus I already have a 50w heater lying around (the tank it came with houses goldfish) so I can put good use to that.

UPDATE on the plant:
I tried to pull the leaves out of the water and just leave in the stemm. The plant freaked out on me. The leaves started curling and the plant went limp. I put the whole plant in the water again and it's back to normal. thought that was pretty weird...

I'd be afraid the fish would jump out with no lid on the tank o_o
