going the paludarium or riparium route would be beautiful but the with of the tank compared to the height would be a bear to work with. the mago root idea is interesting.
yes, the tank has some chalanges that is for sure!!
a tank lanted heavy with Jungle vals and a few different textures there of with a great piece of wood with mosses sure seems a considerable easier to maintain.
also to throw out for consideration is that this will be in our main living space where my mobility chalanged husband spends the day so movement and interest with in the tank are a huge consideration. so what would you want to watch all day?
