Hello! Young Buffalonian. You are absolutely right. Try searching for Lee's product. a hanging plastic container. Lfs used them to hold fish when they net out fish to sell/bag.. I believe they come in either 2 or 3 sizes. Those suction cups won't be suction cup with time. And they probably will charge arm and a leg for a replacement suction cups. LOL!

Once you find the Lee's Product, I am confident you will know what to do with it when you study the one on sale for $40. I bet you can/will even make it better. LMK if need little help.

Try Lee's Aquarium & Pet Products in aq accessories. There are at least four different size avail. Think. I am you can come up with good modification, even one with small pump.

God Night Young Man. I think It's getting too late although it's Summer Vacation.

It wouldn't work the way the one on DFS would. There are slots in the bottom; this would prevent you from keeping sand in it. I believe this is what cerianthus was telling you about:


If you are considering this project for a Biocube, it may be easier just to convert one of the back chambers to a fuge with a waterproof LED light. I've seen DIY plans for this... I'll see what I can dig up.
