The glass on that bowl looks pretty thick, it might be why it was more expensive, but would hold up better to abuse... Unlike the one guys bowl that cracked only by him turning it...

I have some great blxya from my high-tech 29G (has snails, although I can try to remove any; BBA on an amazon sword only, never on anything short / the blxya) if you want. PM me if you're interested!
I saw that very same vase at target tonight while looking for pots for non-aquatic plants

bummer. what to do now? buy a glass plate to use as a cover?

get a custom cut glass cover to fit perfectly on that vase ad look good. you simply take a cutout to a glass/mirror shop near you.

yes a cardboard cutout of what you want the glass cover to look like. they need it for the dimensions.

You could just cover the surface with floating plants, no?

Plexiglass, you can cut it yourself. Its kind of a pain tho.

plexiglass fogs much worse than glass and takes out much of the light. it also warps.

What about window screen? Light can get through, some plants can grow out, and no worries about jumpers...

that's a great idea. i'll look for some screen.

maybe even one of those metal ones you put over a pan when frying stuff so grease doesn't end up all over the stove.
