Attaching large riparium planters
Hi everyone. I'm putting together a 50gal riparium, sort of an 'internal' style, with the plants kept INSIDE the tank rather than growing out of it. I have a couple plastic containers I'd like to use as planters, but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to attach them to the back of the tank. They seem too large for suction cups. Magnets are expensive, and as I've learned firsthand, coating them in silicone reduces their pull. Should I try using Great Stuff foam? Some kind of hanging cables? Building a support structure from the bottom up?
For reference I have two containers that are 11" long, 5 1/2" wide, 4 3/4" tall. I'm open to ideas here, please help me out?
