Thanks!

I used expanding polyurethane foam over egg crate to create the structure. Cork bark was embedded in the foam (technically, the foam was added around the cork bark). The foam was then covered with Hygrolon.

The filter mats are there as a drainage layer, and to maintain aeration beneath the substrate. The bottom of the tank was also drilled to allow water to drain out freely.

This sums it up. As I was scrolling through I just saying "wow" to myself in my head. Got to the bottom of the page and saw your comment and went "yep."

Beautiful!

Hi there!

This is great! Really fantastic! I have no knowledge about paludarium, I'm an aquarist. But this layout is absolutly my taste, pure nature. When I look at all the nice pictures I give a consideration to setup a paludarium too
