Thanks...thought they were his but I didn't see them on the website. Special order I guess? Or easy enough to make from the regular planter I suppose.

You won't get the same quality from a DIY planter that you get from hydrophyte's riparium's. Plus, the trellis rafts are AWESOME!!!

I can vouch for his planters. have several in each of my tanks and they are sturdy. I do not believe the magnetic ones are available anymore though. The suction cup version is what i purchased.

I don't think he sells them with magnets anymore. He found out the hard way how strong the magnets can be the hard way. If you aren't careful they will break the glass. I have a couple and they have really nice suction cups on them.

I mean get his suction cup planters and modify them. Maybe it's not worth the effort. I'll end up with some anyways, maybe I'll toy around with one to see.

Hoppy had a nice thread about attempting a DIY magnetic mod on hydrophytes planters so you might want to give that a read:

Definitely wouldn't want to risk a broken tank with magnets. What don't you like about the suction cups i wonder?
