7.5 gallon cube paludarium

I finally got around to converting my Mr Aqua 7.5 gallon cube low tech to a paludarium last night. It's going to be plants only.

So far I have:

Christmas moss (I think)
Hydrocotyle tripartita
Crypt parva

I will be adding HC once I get enough grown out in my riparium. Other than that, I have no plans as of yet. Let me know what you guys think. As always, suggestions and critiques are welcome.





The water is still a little cloudy and there is a little MGOCPM on top of the sand. I almost pulled it out and went sand only, but I wanted to see how it works out with the dirt.

Are you raising the water level? If not how did you get your AC20 intake low enough to siphon water? I've always had to have the water be at least 3/4ths full for it to filter or any AC for that matter.

I'm actually out of town for an extended period. My wife is the tank caretaker while I'm gone, but only to keep fauna alive. I'm sure I'll have some cleaning up and reworking to do when I get home in a couple weeks. I'll update everything I have then.
