Instead of planting an entire tank with full substrate has anyone ever made planters. You could just drop in planted specimans and take them out or move them pretty easily.
Whaddaya think? Am I a brainiac or overlooking something?

In the past some folks would plant their aquatic plants in plastic trays, usually in a mixture of soil and sand. The trays would fit in the tank, and were easily removed to clean the empty bottom of the tank. I believe the trays were the types used in plant nurseries.
