Thank you for your message

The upper part opens and it slides. But it is tedious to intervene inside.
For rain, I will not say how I did it for personal reasons, however, run your imagination to create your own systems. If I've managed why not you! But just think a little bit, and then it's good to think ^^

Very nice tank set up, so what are your inhabitants in there? It would be cool if you had money tree frogs climbing around that would be awesome.

Ah still very cool, I wish I was artistic as you. I have the images in my head but seeing them and doing them are 2 COMPLETELY different things haha. But still your time, effort, and quality of your build is remarkable. You Sir, truely have a gift that I could only dream of ever achieving. Im trying to make a Jurassic themed Planted tank out of my 120 (48x24x24) and I have all the ideas I just hope it works and doesnt look like crap.....By the way I checked your video out. It would be cool if you made an updated video of this tank and be able to incoorperate all of the features in it.

Thank you

Elected achieving project of the year "Paludariums Forum"

There are nearly 7 years, I made the discovery of a discipline, "paludariums" the only French forum on the topic "paludariums, a world between Heaven and Water." Forum essential in this area and especially since the beginning administered by a passionate "Phill". There are a little over 8 years now.

This forum bloomed in my mind a whole bunch of ideas taking their roots in the plant, water and mineral world. And here goes that there by little this realization "Island Paludarium 360" has been assigned the achievement of the 2013 Forum.

Here is "Palunette" the magnificent trophy that creates fully Bupa (a member of this forum).
"Pleasure to create" here is what animates this artist who is not his first attempt. And I warmly thank her contribution.



Also thank you to everyone who followed me on this forum during this project. Thank you all.


Ps: Photos of the evolution of the vegetation of the 6th month will follow in the coming week.
A very soon.

Hello and thank you to all

After several months of absence, I just give a little news of this project: D


Evolution of Vegetation - 6 months (this winter)

Six months have passed since the installation of vegetation, a small summary of winter images is required.
The life goes on inside the plants always grow as much.

I added an Jasminum Sambac (or Arabian Jasmine). It flourished in soon after.









We can see that the branches of driftwood begin to ward off humus on their surface. This is the result of the renewal foam, which gives more nutrients to new mosses and plants that grow there.










The bottom of the water is obviously messed with the time, but it has the advantage of accentuating the natural effect.
Water is however quite clean and clear, it is only on the bottom that accumulates the development of cyanobacteria.




Evolution of Vegetation - 1 Year

A year that the project is running alone, I did not intervene it, I chose to "let do".

Some plants have disappeared, others have proliferated, as expected the ficus pumila "repens" and especially the foam "Lebermoos" literally invaded the project.

Here are some pictures before pruning :



We can see the algae accumulated at the bottom of the water, creating a thick carpet.
















Cutting of vegetation (currently)

Here is the project now, after a big cleaning of the water area and the hobbing plants "invaders."










However, I left a part dirt in here and there on the sand to keep this little wild effect.
