Advice: ADA DOOA Wabi-Kusa/ Living Wall / EpiWeb IIS

I recently viewed the ADA DOOA Wabi-Kusa which I thought forms almost a mini paludarium with a living wall background. I want to see if I can do something similar with a small (2ft) planted tank that I am setting up – using the small ‘living wall’ as a form of filter and to have a natural planting transition. I wondered if anyone had any experience of doing this, if they had used the ADA DOOA Wabi-Kusa, if they had any experience of using the EpiWeb IIS system to achieve a similar outcome or if anyone had any general advice?

Please accept my apologies if this is rather a naive question – I am new to the forum and while have kept fish in planted aquariums for a number of years I realise that I have a great deal to learn!

The pictures posted by The No Place to Be, No One to See look fantastic, however, the price of the ADA system is out of my range. I wondered if anyone had used the EPIWEB IIS system to achieve a similar effect? This looks to me to be a cost effective way of achieving a similar outcome...

Epiweb does not appear to improve the price once you include the tank/terrarium in the price. Unless I am missing something.

I thought the ADA DOOA Wabi-Kusa Wall 60 was about 179 Euro? On top of this I think you need a stand (for the wall at 40 Euro). I am not sure if this includes the pump. So a total of about 220 pounds (excluding pump and tank).

The EPIWEB II system comes in at about £29.99 for a 500 x 600 mm system. This doesn't include a pump, however, this can be purchased for about 30 pounds. So a total of about 60 pounds including the pump but excluding the tank.

The ADA system does, however, look amazing!
