75 gallon paludarium pics...

Here are a few snap shots of my newly complete 75 gallon paludarium... i am not quite done yet.... i know some may dismiss it as a paludarium because it has fake plants... but I think they blend in fairly well for being fake, I am probably going to add some live plants in the future at least to the water section...but for now... here it is.... going to house 2 vietnamese mudskippers and some fish in the bottom.. not sure what kind yet... any suggestions??

Looks pretty good. I'm going to start building one of my own, in a 72g, soon. How'd you build it? How'd you make the island and what went into the background? What type of filtration are you using?

The land is egg crate covered in landscape fabric with sand on top... It is held up by pvc columns and large rocks...

The background is actually just some floor slate tiles... I attached some sheet moss in a few places...

It is filtered by a cascade canister that makes the waterfall...

That looks great! I would at least throw some pothos in there and take out the fake plants. I love the hardscape

That tank really tied the room together
