    Just rinse everything well with hot water and it should be ok. Glass is relatively inert unless it has a high lead content so it should be safe.

    Sounds like a good idea. However, the water that runs through peat turns brownish which might not look as nice.

    Yeah, the water will be brown, so aim for darker glass stones.

    Maybe look at growing some LFS or Bladderworts in the same pot as your plants?

    In general, I don't go for looks. But that'll loook pretty cool!

    Bladderworts go well with any set up, haha. Maybe get some heterosepala or calycifida that puts out lots of traps you can see.

    I definitely think you should try it. Maybe go for a colored glass bowl to hide the color of the water as the others said. Keep in mind that the more light there is passing through the water, the more algae and other kinds of muck will be able to grow. Growing companion plants like Sphagnum or Utricularia would also serve to prevent this.
