DIY Planters


I love my Geo's, and i love my plants in the tank with them, but what i thought i could work, might not work out so well after-all. But i'd like to meet things in the middle, and put mostly dwarf grass, Anubis, and dwarf sag in planters attached to the glass at intermediate levels. adjusting height with growth.

Anyone make cheap alternatives to the ones i see at a sponsor site? I'm open to any ideas, besides anchoring which might be another route, but for now planters are what i'm leaning on.

Yeah I've used that quilting template stuff. Looking for something a little more crafty, and asthetically pleasing. It's a south American bio-tope, something that will blend in more.
