Looking for plant and animal suggestions for my new Paladarium

Just installed this 4’x4’x2’ tank in my home.
It’s about 2/5 water.
Looking for any good suggestions for what kind of plants to grow in the air/land area.
Also looking for suggestions on anaimals to include.
Anything that can go water to land is obviously a major plus!

That looks great! I'm trying to get one built now out of an old reef tank. I'm going to house a Green Tree Python and have a few fish and critters in the water. I'd love to hear what you end up doing with your setup? Seems like a great new angle at the hobby. Very interesting!

Is that all the "land" area you are planning on providing? That is going to severely going to limit what you can put in there as far as terrestrial species. As it is now I would just put aquatic fauna in there. If you reduced the water level it would give you more terrestrial options and would look better IMHO. Also adding a 3d background would add interest as well as expand your options.

If you want to keep it as is I would have Tillandsia (air plants) or any other the various epiphytic ferns.

4'X4'X2' are some awesome dimensions for a paludarium and give you a lot of options to play with, good luck!

Well that's just like.........your opinion man.

If you're willing to put up with the Brackish water hassle, you could choose a mudskipper. they're really cool and they've got a lot of personality, not to mention, you can house them with just about any other brackish fish. Excluding puffers, other mudskippers, or anything too big for your tank of course.

Just throwing this out there, most mudskippers spend around 90% of their time out of water so the way this is set up now is less than ideal for them.

oh, okay. I've never had one before, sorry about that. Yeah, looking back at the paladarium, you'd want to provide more terrestrial area for it...
