i seen them on fake glass fish, they got a fishing line that ties them to the glass fish... any1 know where i can get them?

my plan is tie them to something at the bottom of the tank, then use the string attached to pull the container up :) (various ideas stem off that)

I know what your talking about. I have 3 of them...a fish, and a manta ray, and an octopus...lol My mom got the fish and the ray for me when they were in Shipswana, Indiana. My aunt got the octopus for me when she wasx in Sanibel Island Florida.

I really like these things...they are really cute...lol

I"ll see if I can find some online.

i actually just want the "balls" not the fish
Here's a quotation from Craig Ball Sales where you can buy many different kinds of glass balls: "If you cannot find the balls that you are looking for, please click here to request a quote."

All I can say is Craig Ball Sales sure has a lot of products!

To bad ice cubes wouldn't work permanently! Whatever you are doing with them, is permanent, right?

I don't think online sources like to carry anything that fragile. I know what you're talking about, and it seems like they'd break pretty easily in the USPS.

USPS ships glass Christmas tree ornaments evey year. All it takes is the original packing material or something equal.

Couldn't you use *anything* that floats? Lots of clear stuff floats...
give examples then :)
Plastic pop bottles with the labels off, bubble wrap, air filled shipping spacers, zip lok bags with air in them, and I already said ice cubes.

i feel like you could just make something or find something you got that would work and be "invisible" too. I wouldnt spend the money for some glass balls and then you still gotta do yer project anyways. Just do the whole thing all yerself. I'll try to think up some ideas for some diy clear bobbers, hehe
