Hi Karen,
  Great project, I will be happy to send you a large asst. of plants, on
behalf of my company.  
  I am in a lot of schools and find it amazing how many aquariums I see.
The down side is, that they are usually a mess, a novelty, or not being
used. I would like to change this a little and could use some help.
 I will be changing a few things on my web page soon. One of the changes
I'm going to add is a "school projects" page. The intent will be to give
teachers some ideas on how to use their aquarium(s) as a teaching tool. 
  What I need are some project ideas that include an objective, a few
questions related to that subject and most of all, a willing Mentor for
the project submitted if questions arise. In other words your e-mail
and/or your web page will be included in the project proposel along with
your name.
  Perhaps this idea will get off to a slow start, which is probably
good, but nothing ventured .......
  I might add, that probably 30-40% of my e-mail ends with an edu., It
only takes a few of the right ones to get the word out to teachers.
  I hope to have my web page changed within a week. You can e-mail me at
DQallwet at avana_net or at my web page
