if i understand the idea correctly, the breeders and plants will be in the water, greatly relieving the weight load on the glass. I guess the question is will there be substrate in the containers, and if so, what kind and how much? this is where most of your weight-bearing problems will arise. something light like Schultz/Profile might be a godsend in this setup. This sounds like a great idea, and a possible use for some of those marginal plants sold in chain pet stores as "aquarium plants" grown emmersed, many of them would do just fine. There's also the ever popular pothos that grows great with the roots in the tank water, and grows "vines" up and across the top (if you have one) or sides of the tank. There are also many plants we grow submersed that would thrive in this setup (lysimachia nummularia would love this setup, as well as the bacopas and the ludwigias). I would personally choose the plants based on whether they flower, if they have pleasing aromas, and if they would thrive in the ambient temperature in the room (most should, but it's a consideration). Fantastic post! I look foward to pictures of this once its fully realized.
