Just got back from a trip to the coast this weekend and came back with some buckets of
mud, water, crabs, and some cord grass and other plants from a coastal marsh area north
of town.

The plan is to recreate the area in a 5 or 10 gallon tank. Of course all the plants
will be emersed or on land.. using driftwood and perhaps stones to keep the mud up
high in one end and shallow in the other where the water will be. Further I plan on
putting it near a window, so I won't need lighting.

Possibly .. if I have room in the water portion of the tank, I think I might put a par
of sailfin mollies or something else that would be happy in the environment. Of course
this might require a larger tank for the endeavor. And ideas? thoughts on that?

Frankly I'm looking for any and all opinions on this subject that anyone here may have.
And certainly if anyone has messed with this idea or environment.. please share.
