New Paladarium Setup


Not quite sure of the tank size, need to measure it to be sure. Was given to my by a friend and thought the dimensions would be perfect for a paladarium. Not sure what kind of animals I even plan on putting into it yet, so any suggestions are appreciated! Here are a few pics to get the thread started.


Bare Tank.



Eggcrate, zipties and Tupperware!



And, just about finished.



Will be using a larger size fluval Canister filter, hydro inline heater, and a CurrentUSA 24" 4 bulb T5HO fixture w/ LED moon lights.

Water flows into pool on top left. Then down down a channel to a pool on the bottom right. Water drains from a hidden 1 1/2" PVC pipe. Then exits on top of a waterfall on the bottom left corner. It flows in a channel under the driftwood stump and into the pool on the bottom.

Insert is fully removable for maintenance. Hoping to put it together and add some water tonight.
