I think a few pebbles with moss or something covering them to ease the transition to the foreground...

Nice.

No Problem.

I seriously think it could make it look like WOW.

This cup seems too silly..

Personally I've always wanted to do a platter of drinks with Wabi Kusas and stuff depending on the drink glass type.

For water changes you could just submerse the whole glass in the tank and you would have done a 100% water change in about 2 seconds
