    Well. Thank you. Heh...
    One last question now that I've decided which species I want to grow, What kind of soil should I have?

    The tank is eight inches deep, so Maybe three quarters of an inch of aquarium gravel for drainage, and three to four inches of medium?

    What do I use as the medium?

    Thank you SOOOO MUCH!

    Skip the gravel and drill a couple holes in the bottom of the terrarium. Medium peat/perlite/LFS - 2/2/1 ratio.

    I can do that, but no drilling...
    That wasn't a vital part to the whole plan, was it?

    Are you sure you can't in some make some holes in the bottom. Melt them in or anything. Just as long as you don't crack the terrarium. If you can't it won't matter that much, but your its going to be hard to water. Let me see if I can come up with something.

    I have an idea, Just get teeny-tiny nails and a teeny-tiny hammer, and make teeny-tiny hits, and soon you'll have lotsa teeny-tiny holes! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    How about a tube down one corner, and you can suction the drained water up?

    Don't bother with the holes. You could try putting somehing in a back corner, maybe a piece of clear plastic or something so that the water level can be checked, maybe like cut the top couple inches off a bottle of water and put it in the corner.
