Brackish Paludrium questions
I am building a brackish paludrium for my sons red claw crabs. Right now they are in a smaller paludrium but its not big enough for them to really move around.
I have a few questions though, i dont want this to fail like my last big project (the dirted disaster of 2015).
What would you suggest as far as substrate? They are burrowers and what ive read said sandy mud is home for them but i dont know if thats possible?
Plants? I love my plants, i know of the javas, and the salinity of these guys is only going to reach 1.005 so is there anything else other than java fern and java moss that would work? I knoe mangroves but these are climbers and i feel like mangroves would grow too much.
They would need some sort of a slope, would it be better to slope the substrate or have a ramp? During the last disaster gas pockets were a serious issue, so im a bit wary of going through that event again.
Sorry for all the questions, id prefer to do this right the first time than screw it up royally THEN ask for help lol.
