So a couple weeks ago i discovered the art that is vivarium and paludarium building. Needless to say I was quickly pulled in with all the beautiful builds so I HAD TO MAKE ONE!! So this past weekend i started the process to turn my 29 gallon tank into a viv. I'm trying to do this on the cheap, but thats not always easy to do, and I HAVE to HAVE some sort of a waterfall.
Couple things it must have for me to be successful-
1. At least 10 gallons of water
2. Waterfall of some sort
3. At least one amphibian
4. Great Stuff DIY background and shelf
5. Easy maintenance

oh crap, you meant how to keep it on the eggcrate since there are holes? duh....i use weed blocker material.
ya know what Dan, i don't normally do this, but i am going to link you to another forum i belong to. i get asked so many questions on construction, that i did this thread as a "how to". maybe it will help you wrap your head around things http://www.frogforum.net/vivarium-te...aludarium.html
If you are doing a paludariums a false bottom isn't a great idea I would do net pots mounted in GS foam to plant in. Your tank isn't big enough to do a large water and land area effectively. Check out my Borneo tank to see what I did. (I did have custom foam rocks made so a little different but you could easily build up foam in their place)
