duff Wow, that a great sized tank! (you have about 125g or so) We need an updated picture soon!

atticus22 Thanks I've since filled out the water section with a few plants too.

Its 3ft (H) x 3ft (L) x 2ft (D), not sure what that is in gallons!

Fishies_in_Philly Look at Duff rocking the vivs!! If you ever trim the hydrocoytle, let me know i think it's a disease Duff, once you do one, you want to do more. My next projects are a 40b palu and a 29b palu, maybe a 15 carnivorous terrarium.

Wy Renegade Those are all cool! I'd love to see a thread on one or all. You know, that is how we all roll, steal a little bit of an idea for here and there and pretty soon you got your own little creation. Once you start, they just keep on evolving. My newest projects are a couple of 40Bs and a 30B. The 40s are paludariums, and the 30 I'm not sure on yet, but it might end up being a semi riparium.

duff Thanks Bill, Now I want a tank as big as yours!!!! Love your set up - it is amazing what blobs of foam turn into I think I am addicted to paludariums!

Wy - Life got in the way of a thread and I keep meaning to do one - maybe I'll get the gumption up this weekend. Thank you for the kind words!

I love both of your set up and the Orchid blooms you've had are stunning! Your original details on your plumbing was a great help to me.

Here is the other small tank I just set up over the last few weeks with a much larger water area this time around

The the little collection I started:

Wy Renegade Very nice duff, were is the thread on that one?

Couple of mine;

The Bog: 20gal Long Turtle tank Paludarium (home to assorted macroinvertes and crayfish, occassionally some minnows);

The Chorus frog Paludarium: DIY drilled 30gal aquarium (home to chorus frogs, swamp darters, and lots of invertebrates both micro and macro);

Fishies_in_Philly I'm with don, it looks "ok" for a little tank seriously, that looks great duff. Nice job!!

duff Awe, thanks Crazydaz! It was sad looking in the beginning but somehow it's actually turned out good! It's actually a ZooMed 12x12x18. A fellow terrarium enthusiast asked for a build overview of my little tank a while back for his web site. This will show the progression from start to finish (the picture above was taken over the weekend).

I too love the hydrocotyle and HC emersed, and they both grow like little weeds. I could never get the Hydrocotyle to grow well below water apparently the trick was to try it above water. The Hydro and HC started out as just a few little sprigs and in 4 months they have all but taken over.

This shot is the closest one I have to a full shot showing the sides.

crazydaz Meh...that looks "OK," duff.

JK!! Wow! Do you have a shot including the some of the frame of the glass? I'm having a difficult time getting my orientation for it. Looks amazing, though!! I always love hydrocotyle species...such a delicate looking plant, even though it grows like a weed!!!
