    Where can you get these globes?

    I found a tall clear glass cylinder at the thrift store and used it in my fish tank. I filled it to the brim with water then placed a small piece of plastic on top to hold the water in while I inverted the cylinder and placed it on bricks in the tank. (Quite a feat, I can tell you!) Once in place, I slid the plastic off and the cylinder remained full of water. The goldfish loved it. They would race up and down the cylinder or hang out at the top watching out the window. It doubled their swimming space, they could come and go as they pleased, and it was this traveling back and forth that kept the water "exchanged". It lasted a long time between cleanings, but it did have to be periodically cleaned. During one of these cleanings, it broke... I don't know who was more saddened by it ... me or the fish.
