Cichlid plant box

For those tanks like mine, that have destructive fish or cichlids. I wanted to add pothos but use canister filters. Every time I add it into the back my cichlids tear it to pieces in minutes. So I took a clear plastic breeder box (convalescent box) and drilled holes along all 4 sides and the bottom and put the pothos in it to keep the fish from destroying it. It'll still get a little water flow thru to help with nitrates Click image for larger version

Haha! I tried it on my African cichlid tank first because they are the most destructive. Been up for a week, so far so good. That box was given to me, but I saw them online for about 5 or 6 dollars. Cheaper than the stupid plant. Lol
