Sean's 65 gallon flooded rainforest riparium
Here is my 65 gallon riparium. It houses 4 angelfish, 7 cherry barbs, 5 cory catfish, 4 Julidochromis transcriptus, and 1 Lamprologus ornatipinnis
For underwater plants, I have jungle vals and a sad looking amazon sword.
For marginal plants, I have creeping jenny and some emergent hydrocotyle 'japan', some Ludwigia repens, and an anubias
For emergent plants, I have some philodendron, a giant purple waffle plant, a peace lily, pilea aluminum, a calathea (well hidden), and a piece of bamboo (also well hidden).
This tank is very low on equipment. I just have 2 sponge filters and a small HOB for filtration, a heater, and a finnex 24/7 light.
The strange mix of African and South American cichlids is due to a Julidochromis overpopulation problem in my other tank. They breed like rabbits. It works out though because they are both on my tap water.
The angelfish breed constantly but always eat their eggs. They also tend to fight a lot so I put in a divider when they need a break from each other. If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I am thinking of getting some manzanita driftwood to break up the sightline between the two sides of the tank.
P.s. If anyone is wondering I do keep a top on the aquarium but I took it off for pictures. It is made of the same material as the divider, which is greenhouse roofing from lowes.

Reason: accidentally called it a paludarium
