This is a really cool project and although I have seen the size of it as it stood on end during construction, I still can't seem to grasp the size of the finished product. I think a photo with a person standing next to the tank would really let everyone get a feel for the scale of this tank, what do you think????

I can't believe I haven't seen this thread until now. That's a top notch paludarium!

How did you apply the epoxy? Paint brush? I'm not very familiar with epoxy, but the fact that the can says "resin" makes me think that it is thick and gel like.

Just found this. Amazing job. Especially since you worked in so many disciplines to pull it together. Very nice, you should be proud.

What lighting did you wind up with? Such a deep tank, I would have thought 4 bulbs of t5ho would fry the plants at the top.

Great, great, inspiring to see.

There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

The owner of this tank took it down a couple of years ago, unfortunately. It was quite a magnificent paludarium.
