xmas moss tank+Paludarium[new better pic]

I was originally going to post these with a bunch of other tanks in one SUPER post, but since I'm leaving for Costa Rica in two days, and college six days after I get back from that, I'm guessing I wont have time to finish all my other lovely projects, so I decided to post these just for fun:

10 gal xmas moss tank:

Light: 28w PC
Substrate: sand
Filter: AquaClear 20 power filter
Co2?: nah!
Ferts: flourish excel once a day, flourish once a week
Flora: xmas moss, Bolbitis heudelotii
Fauna: 12 Boraras maculatus, 1 otto, 3 ember tetras (only in here temporarily)

yeh, it has a bit of algae, but it shrinks by the day, sorry for the crappy pics if I had more time they would have come out better.











This tank is FAR from done, but I don't feel like I'll be able to add to it for the next couple months so I'll post some pics of it also.

30 gal Paludarium:

Lights: 2 x 18w T5
Substrate: sand, Terra-Lite, fluorite
Co2: would be pretty hard for this set up
Ferts: flourish excel every other day, flourish once a week
Flora: Aquatic Section: Anubias nana, Anubias nana petite, Java Fern, Bolbitis heudelotii
Terrestrial and Epiphytes Section: Xmas Moss, Java Moss, Java Fern, Selaginella Plana, Cissus discolor, Microsorum sp., Peperomia sp.
Spathiphyllum wallisii, Philodendron Scadens, Bolbitis heudelotii, Neoregelia sp., Rhizophora mangle
Fauna: just a few White Clouds









Hope you enjoy!

-Colin

How do you manage to keep soil from sloping down to the sand? Juss rocks or retaining wall?

I siliconed in two peaces of cork bark as the dividers, they don't make a water tight seal, but it dose separate the two substrates and looks nice, eventually moss will grow on it.

heres a better pic of the 10 gal:
