Default What to do with a leaky 5 gallon

I suppose when you get a 5 gallon metaframe tank for $4 I shouldn't be surprised that it has a few issues. I got the rust it used to have removed, sealed (or at least rust-o-leum-ed), and in doing so managed to crack one of the long panels of glass right near the bottom. I already knew the slate bottom couldn't hold water, but this was icing on the cake.

And then I came here and had an idea. Plants that don't need to be in dirt or water!
Tada!



I need to find a better piece of wood for it, but I think it looks pretty nice like this. Any other ideas? Know a good place to get tillandsias?
