I like this. I think I will use this idea to make a tank for my beta. I have and would suggest a color changing led for the light You can get them in the aquarium aisle
saw a site selling something very akin to this last year but were charging £70!!! this a much cheaper and more inventive alternative, nice work!

A possible addition is some polycarbonate sandwiched between the 2 halves of the saucer. It would glow from the light source giving a little detail around the edge.

Amazing and so simple! I love that virtually all your elements can be found at the dollar store! Totally clever! :)
Great idea and execution!

Now I just need to find a place to put one...
Also might try filling the glass with some kind of resin so I can have my lego guy floating part way up to the UFO!
