I stuck a sales thread for that new planter size in Swap N Shop. Here's the link.

I'm going to jump into building an ecommerce site from the bottom up. I can give you pointers when I'm done.

I was going to use paypal/et al too but I think leaving my site to paypal may distract from my brand and I'm not shipping anything. So, it's up to what you want. Paypal may be perfect for your needs.

PayPal has worked out pretty well for the Riparium Supply site. It is easy enough to manage and it will be good enough for starting out.

Tonight I got a little setup going in a 10 gallon with various plants in Tank Planters, a spiral CF in a chicken lamp and one of those new Pierce CO2 systems.



This is no aquascape. I just want to grow some plants. I'll add a few more plants and then some gravel to cover the bottom and hide the planters.

Here's another quick view of the plants that I have going in that 10.



Swords and crypts grow happily in Tank Planters. Some of these specimens ahve been rooted in their planters for a couple of months and are still delvoping new leaves and roots.

Thanks Jake. I'm glad you liked that thing. It looked like it would work well in that new setup of yours with an Amazon sword or something like that.

I just put together a quick video and here is the link. I am going to have more of these on the way.

these are super cool. Think I may pick up a few. So you sit them on the substrate or can you bury it to, is there ways for roots to escape through the bottom? I would like to control some swords!

Yep these are nice for plants like Amazon sword to keep them from growing so big and sending roots everywhere.

You can bury and hide them if your substrate is deep enough. If the top of the planter is still exposed you can also hide it by positioning a few shorter foreground plants in front.

There is currently no Tank Planter model with extra holes in the sides or bottom. It is advantageous to have the sealed planter because this helps to keep the ferts and roots inside.

These two SNS offers with reduced S&H charges are still good if you might like to try some out.

While I don't keep goldfish, I do hang out at a goldfish forum. Goldfish are quite the re-decorator and chokers-on-gravel types apparently, and I immediately thought how wonderful these would be for the goldie lovers who can't do plants in gravel.

How spill proof are these? Goldies like to knock potted plants about.

From my experience, they will not spill!
