Awesome tank! For plants that might be suitable, have you thought about smaller mangrove plants? I think Hydrophyte sells them...

Will do.
I've been surprised how often and for how long they spend time out of water.

Thanks.
I had a red mangrove, R. mangle in there. But As happened with all my ten young red mangroves, that one died too, when I had to move them from their original paludarium. I think they don't react well to moving after they have started growing somewhere.

Yes, I've noticed hydro sells black mangrove seedlings and have even considered asking about them, but haven't gotten around to it... yet.

Thanks again!

I'm no filmmaker, but here's some overall footage of the tank, shot with a Nokia N8 phonecam:

Very nice. I keep P.septemradiatus and P.novemradiatus too, in two different aquaria with artificial tides. Arthrocnemum glaucum is a plant which accept saltwater.(http://www.kraeuter-und-duftpflanzen...ueller-Pflanze). This plant grows on the banks of your pool.

Nice! Tide is so cool in mudskipper tanks.

Thanks for the plant suggestion. Never heard of it before, can't find a name for it in my language either. But it looks like a perfect plant to make nice emersed growth in a paludarium.
Gotta look into it.

You wouldn't happen to keep fiddler crabs with those mudskippers, would you?

Tank is truly drool material.

Quick googling shows English common name of Arthrocnemum glaucum as Glasswort.

Thanks, Chucker.
I found glasswort too, but if I translate that to finnish, I get meriotakilokki, which is Salsola kali...

Gotta do some research, here.

Thanks, palufreak.

A home without mudskippers is merely an apartment.

Maybe this wikispecies page for the family that species is in will help -
http://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Amaranthaceae

It has a Finnish vernacular name at the bottom - Revonhäntäkasvit

However, the Amaranth family is really broad....

Glasswort is the common name I presume.
I´ve tried to keep fiddler crabs and mudskipper together, but when fiddler crabs molt, mudskipper killed them. So my fiddler crabs live in 5 other basins. You can find a description of my fiddler crab basins here: http://aqualog.de/news/web61/61-11-15e.pdf

Thanks for that, Chucker. Revonhäntäkasvit is a group or "family" of plants.
Really broad family, as you say.

Thats what I hear. Or at least that the mudskippers tend to eat the crabs' legs. It is just a tempting equation, brackish paludarium and crabs...

Thanks for the link. What a nice report on crabs! Nice!

Me too!!! Beautiful work. I wish I'd have seen this thread before I invested so much time and effort into my current system.
