Planted/paludarium tank

Hello everyone i had planted tank for over 15years i always loved paludarium so i am jumping in a big project probably inside 2 year maby less (i hope). Some of my equipment started failling so i figure migth as well invest in that projet i always wanted to do. Here is a really rough sketch of what i want to do.

This is the actual tank running.

I just did my diy led ramp witch will be modified or upgrade in the prosses of the build. Led with lense will be perfect to continue growing light demading plant even if the light is farter without burning the other plant.

I order an arduino mega board and hope to fully automate my setup. Light,co2, heating, rain, fogger, water change,child proof door lock. Only if i can manage the programing....

The build will be in 2 part

First one is bottom part. Rebuilding stand, upgrading filtration to a sump so i can put a more powerfull pump to have a waterfall (the hole thing should be 7 foot tall).

Second part will be the palu part. Upgrading light, installing rain/mist system, background and all the rest.

So i will keep you posted with the progress of the built. Lots of pic to come.
