    Woah! That's probably gonna die, but it looks like a grade AA science experiment! You should try, after this, sealing it in different containers and noting success rates and such!

    A+!

    Thanks to geosheets I am going to try Kordon breathing bag... it should allow gas exchange but maintain moisture level. They are used for shipping fish and they have tested them with some fish for several weeks. The bag is a membrane that allows oxygen in, CO2 out, and keeps the liquid inside. Here's a link to their website.

    I have recieved fish from Africa in those bags...and used them myself for shipping fish across the country...they do work very well. I have learned that putting them in water while in the bag will actually drown fish...odd no?

    That sounds like a good idea. What shape are you gonna go for? Cup shaped again?
    This is exciting. It's kind of abomination, but also cool. Continue research! Take notes! Consider implications!(clones, extrauteran reproduction, etc!)
