Yea but I don't know where I would put it and since it's already here might as well stick to it I guess.

Always try new things, even if its hard, hard is not impossible. We are smart and it's good to be smart but not too smart for your own good.

What should I seal it with?

 

btw, I caught a Camponotus queen today that landed on my bike handle while I was riding. I almost flung myself off the seat because i pressed the brakes so hard. I think its Camponotus pennsylvanicus, I suck at ID I don't trust myself, Ill be putting up pictures at some point.

You could seal the ends with silicone or rubber plugs if you have them. Another thing you could use are the big bubble wand containers. I think clear glass beer bottles could work, too. You’d never run out of water in that case.
Also this: ask your science teacher if you can borrow some.
