Florida Biotope Paludarium
Hello, I'm new to this forum. I have a 40 gallon breeder tank and I want to make it into a biotope paludarium for the stinkpot musk turtle it is currently housing. Now, this species of turtle is not like most pond turtles that people keep as pets. It only reaches four inches in length and will only occasionally nip on plants and does not go after fish, so I know that it will work for a paludarium. For aquatic plants, I'm planning on using Phoenix moss, mermaid weed, Bacopa caroliniana, and hornwort. What kind of habitat would this resemble and are there anymore plants I could use for the water feature? I also know which epiphytes I'm going to use, but I'm completely lost on which land plants I'm doing. Any suggestions? Also, what fish do you suggest?
