    The plastic is safe for food I think. I use PLA filament. I believe it does float on water but objects with higher infill(how much the inside of the object is filled in) may not.

    Please do find out if it's food safe and I might have more ideas.
    I found these things that I'd bid on:

    https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1656361
    (and if it's food/aquarium safe) https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4196418
    I know we have other members who have aquariums, this may be of interest to them too.

    Also, what color will the stuff you print be?

    I do not know yet. I currently have a little bit of red and white but I'll have to order some more filament soon.

    According to https://reprage.com/post/36869678168...-pla-food-safe " PLA "...is a bioplastic derived from stuff like corn, potato and tapioca." And according to https://reprap.org/forum/read.php?184,179547 PLA is safe in freshwater but bacteria in saltwater will consume it because it is a bioplastic

    I'm always looking for more Sarracenia. Rarer the better but I'm not picky.

I could 3d print mini combination safe thing around 5-6 inches tall if people are interested. You can look on http://thingiverse.com/ for ideas of what I should 3d print that people would be interested in.
    Oh, and I'd bid on this. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3819220
    I'm sure other cat keepers would too!

    Do you have any preference for color Acro? I am getting black, white, blue, and glow in the dark filament that I could use.

    I imagine Black would be a good color for all of those items.

    But, if I was posting them, I would take the website photo and use it as an example in your post (you could even give the link). Then I'd say how, after the end of the auction, the winner could pick from the colors I had available. Then I'd print the item and ship it off.

    People love it when things are customizable.

    Always looking for pings (mexican (debbertiana, potosiensis, , medusina, 'Golden Eye', 'Marciano', 'Mirador') or cold-hardy (e.g., P. vulgaris, P. macrocera, P. chilensis/nahuelbutensis)). And I just added a bit more sarr real estate this month, so I'll be looking for options there.

    I also have a bit of a hoya bug at the moment. Any H. polyneura out there?

    Edit: Utricularia blanchetii
