My new 65g Paludarium

This is a work in progress and it was just recently planted, but here we go. This was a 65g saltwater setup that I essentially got for free. Spent the past few months slowly putting this viv together.

The only current inhabitants are the 9 Endlers in the water section. They are so tiny that that they figured out a way to get under my false bottom but they seem to be able to travel back and forth so I'm not that bothered. Future inhabitants will be 3-4 poison dart frogs, D. Leucomelas.

The only change from this photo is that the anubias nana are now mounted on a piece of wood that comes out of the water and rests on the land.

Thanks for looking!

Looks great. I am looking forward to more pictures. Can you post a list of the plants you have growing in there?

I can try. I looked some of these up myself and didn't get many results, so I'm thinking that the greenhouse I got the plants from did a lot of the cloning and naming themselves.

The aquatic section has:
glossostigma elatinoides
anubias nana

The rest:
Vriesea fosteriana v. seideliana
Tillandsia 'Chantilly' (stricta x leonamiana)
Vriesea espinosae
Hoya species ex. Patrick, Luzon
Aechmea 'Pagoda'
Selaginella brownii 'Lacy spikemoss'
Polystichum tsus-simense
Neoregelia 'Tuti Fruti'
Cryptanthus 'Rubin Star'
Neoregelia 'Tumbleweed' (liliputiana x Blushing Tiger)
Tillandsia aeranthos 'Major'
Neoregelia 'Gift of Love'
Neoregelia 'Ruby Lips'
Guzmania lingulata 'Teresa'
Neoregelia 'Angel Face'

Here's a better pic:

And here's my favorite brom, I mounted it too high for it to be easily visible from the front:

Thanks for the list. I am going to have to do a paludarium with broms next; I really like the look.

I would like to see a picture of the terrestrial growth in the front-right if possible sometime. I like the look of that area.
