And I remember posting in it. If that tank leaks, you could line it with plastic and dump your soil in it. You have to have a place for it for when the weather gets cooler. Heck, if you had it lined with plastic, you could have it in the house.

do i need any sort of heating?
or if i have it out in the sun would the sun be enough heat for them?

Oops. You're talking about tank plants and not house plants, right? Then plastic won't help as the water will get in there and leak out anyway. It would work for a reptile tank or house plants tho. You could have a nice terrarium.

the plan is to re-enforce the crack and fill it again but leave it outside incase it blows LOL

i really want tank plants

How about plants that grow emmersed and submersed, like anibius and some forums of ludwigia? You could grow them in soil and then move them to tanks when they got larger. There's got to be a bunch of them. A lot of the plants we get grow on river banks emmersed. It might be nice to have a list of those plants, huh? Why don't you do that little project?
