100 gal borneo paludarium


as the title states i am building a 100 gallon paludarium that i am trying to fill with species from borneo. the tank is 22x24x43 inches deep/wide/high. the water portion will be about 10 inches deep. i am planning on a small school of boras brigittae; and pairs of betta brownorum and licorice gourami, i am not sure of the gourami species yet. a couple of build pics.

ive started the background and added most of the water here is a near current look at it.


and a quick look at the par lvl at what will be near the water surface. this reading is almost 3 feet below my 4 20 watt bxra4000 leds.


more pics to come as the build evolves.

ok i have added water, finished the background, and added some plants. one big clump of hygrophila diff. ,a bucephalandra sp. sokan 'shine blue', and some java moss. the hygro will have to come out once i find some appropriate borneo native aquatics. i also added some glass shrimp, zebra nerites, and kuhli loaches. im still planning on adding a small group of Boras brigitta, a pair of betta brownorum, and a small gourami specie as well. if anyone has any ideas on what inverts are borneo natives i would love to hear it. same if you have any borneo native aquatics for sale. hope you like the pics.
