  1. I got a lot of advice from other kokonuts-- especially Yafashelli-- because there's a million way to protect your floaters, but this is the way I made my floating plant nets. The simplest floating plant protector is a dollar store colander like this. http://www.biglots.com/images/small/330014200-1.jpg BUT if you really want that legit floating plant net look like me, you'll need: 1. Air tubing from your local hardware store. (Home Depot, etc.) 2. Laundry bag mesh from local dollar store. (Available sizes may vary.) I recommend green or black, but you have to go with a color that matches your aquarium setting. 3 simple steps to make: 1. To seal tubing into a circle, heat one end in hot water for 20 seconds. 2. Push the heated end into the nonheated end to form a circle. Heating makes it easier to make it leak-proof and completely sealed. 3. Zip or tighten the laundry bag mesh with the circle tube inside, and push the zipper/openable side so that it falls down the through the top. Then it looks like the finished product. Voila~ the perfect knock-off. Now your floating plants are safe in aquariums or ponds. The big one cost me about 10 bucks in total, which is big enough to fill half my 40 long aquarium. The small one cost less than 5 and is about 7 inches diameter.
