Sorry didn't notice a used by date. It came into my PC on the 8th. ;-)

I was thinking more on this.

If you had 2 or 3 straws glued together then one of them could be slightly 
weighted so that it extends down into the water. Each end could be attached 
via a bit of fishing line to a sucker on opposite glass walls so that as the 
water level goes up or down it remains in place.

Next time you're are the supermarket or wine shop, look out for different 
designs of drinking straws. I often find myself looking at things like this 
for possible aquatic use.
