    That's insecure alright.
    The profile pic that you see above is my actual photo. I am a hyper-intelligent snake that has learned to use the internet and I will eventually rule you all.

    Just kidding..... Or am I?

    It's amazing the things you can find in that store.
    I gave up on my cobra Lilly project but this would be perfect. Might have to revisit it.

    Just keep in mind that that pump is rather weak, so use enough tubing but not too much and dont make the setup too tall

    I have been considering a similar setup for my cobra lilies as well. I've seen one other person's setup of cobra lilies and he uses a solar pump for them and it works well.

    I think $17.99 is a bit of a rip-off. I got several from Amazon last year for under 6 each ($9.00) I have 4 of them running in large Darlingtonia seedling trays.
    I also carry spares which so far have not been necessary.

    It's a different story with the solar air pumps. I only have one working from 3 bought ( 2 refunded)
