15g Paludarium


I have an open-top paludarium here. Are there any land fauna suitable for this setup?

What are the conditions in the tank and would you be getting a hood/top for it?

BTW amazingly beautiful setup.

Thanks, but not getting a hood though. Temperature is 28C, humidity around 60%.

I can't think of anything terrestrial that there would be space for in that set-up. At least nothing that wouldn't escape without a hood.

Great looking build though. Do you mind listing the flora you have in there?

That's really nice looking. Mind telling us what's in it (material wise) and how it was built?

I don't have much info for critters, I kept a newt (firebelly, i think?) for about a year or so in a 10g paludarium.

Probably want something primarily aquatic, but comes out once in a while - and you'll probably need some sort of cover, whether it's screen, plastic, glass. almost anything with terrestrial capability can likely crawl out of there.

The only thing I can think of (and it's brackish) is mudskippers, they would be VERY cool. Could also do a juvi archerfish with them in the water portion.

There is a very tiny frog which is mostly water oriented but would require a screen top. But toad tadpoles are common in spring
and they are very small till changing to adults at which time they remain small for quite some time. Fruit flies could be attracted/
cultured by placing a very small piece of banana in a hidden place in the tank and it would just become fertilizer for the plants.
Free food for the toads. Toads love to place eggs in rainwater puddles so telling if it's actually a toad tadpole is not a problem.
Then too if a screen is not a problem, some pet shops carry those S.American frogs that are small and look like the poison darter frogs.
You may not need a top/w the toads. The common brown ground skink(not the Blue Tailed) would be a good size.

Haha looks like I have to forget about land fauna. My country only allows green tree frogs.

I am very interested in setting something like this up in a 10 gallon that I have kicking around. What sorts of plants are those and where did you purchase them from?

Is that a DIY styrofoam background?

Land area plants: Crispy wave fern, red cryptanthus, mondo grass, hydrocotyl, riccia, star moss, christmas moss, hc cuba, water sprite, staurogyne, asian ambulia

Water body plants: Crypt wendtii, christmas moss, amazon frogbit, asian ambulia.

Plants are from local farms and lfs in Singapore, not sure about their names though.

Background is cork bark

Now that i have my own paludarium, how do you keep humidity up with the open top? I have to battle my humidity in a 50g closed top.
