CatB xD. if you want a plant that will turn your tank into a forest, get some water sprite... i'm under the impression that it grows like a weed just about anywhere.

awesome tank, awesome thread! this tank has had so many different appearances, it's nuts! but i've been happy with all of them. except maybe the one with the toy windmill... xD. bit cheesy for my tastes.
but i wish you luck, OP, on a successful paludarium! i've read the thread with your pond before, so you certainly seem good at it. subscribed for any future changes :>
Hey CatB, thanks for checking out my tank!
Yeah that sail remains a dream...

I wanted to put some pots inside the tank, but I'm out of suction cups at the moment. I found a really cool outdoor mysterious plant that is nano in size and is pretty cool.

Hope my paludarium will be a forest soon!

doncityz I notice some tiny planaria in my tank now.. Probably due to the recent bulldozing of the substrates. Did another WC. Betta didn't even see the tiny planaria otherwise he'd already ate them all.

I am going to setup some small pots attached to the tank wall. Seems there aren't enough plants in this tank.

Pics soon..!

xjasminex I like it, too bad it's not a bigger tank, it's a tad small, maybe the next inhabitants could be shrimp and snails!

You should add some moss on the branches and try to get it to grow up and out, moss like flame or peacock might be good =]

@marko@ i like it.

the terms are all latin: viv- life, terra- earth, aqua- water, palus- swamp, arium- cage/container
a vivarium is a container for living things, and includes terrariums (earth dwelling things), aquariums (water dwelling organisms), and paludariums (semi-terrestrial things).

And yes, anubias can be grown emersed so you'll be fine.
THANKS!!
Just took me about 4-5 hours to do it. Yeah the filter output is out and imade it into a waterfall of some sort. The water is probably 1g yeah.. But I am glad I finally can use back the rock that I bought for my 12.5g and the big piece DW. I still want to add some more pebbles (smaller ones) at the bottom and do some scaping for it. Probably get some more mysterious small plants outside my house lol.

Just to answer your questions, a paludarium is a type of vivarium. A vivarium is a pretty broad term given to terrariums, aquariums, etc.
Thanks for checking out my tank. I see, ok thanks for that clarification on paludarium.
