Budget palladium build

Started constructing 10g palladium with stuff I had lying around. Flora max for aquatic substrate, Tahitian black sand by carribasea for top layer of slope over potting soil, potting soil for land topped with sphagnum moss. For humidity. Miniature palm plant, philodendron, other random low light tropical plant,12 dollar pump and filter places invertred so it will pump, possibly replacing it with terrarium filter. Letting the water settle now. Click image for larger version
