just put some weights around the bottom, dont plant, i think it sends roots into the soil after a while, but planted bits will just rot.

Tweezers.

Aquascape? I'm a crypt farmer.

It's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore looking like an idiot.

That IS an aquascape, it's titled "The Vacant Lot".
