A couple months ago. 2 Firebellied toads, cherry shrimp, 3 white cloud minnows that lived through the spring, summer, and fall in a 20 gallon tub outside.

I just finished the main set-up about two weeks ago. It's a 25 gal high with a tricklewater fall. I still need to add some more plants to both the water and the land portions. It's a bit hard to find plants this time of year.
No pictures as of yet but hopefully soon. I have 4 green tree frogs and 2 anoles in there.

Yikes! Gabeszone and Oink, you two have great looking Paladariums (if that's what they are).
I've thought about doing one like those before, and still might someday. Do you have problems with the firebelly toads eating the shrimps? Or do they even go for them?

I will definitely build one at some point. They are so cool.
Yoink, Is that a prefab unit in yours or did you build that from scratch?

The toads don't try to eat anything in the water unless there is a cricket floating on the top. I had reproducing endlers in the tank before the white clouds and they wouldn't even go for the fry. They did take a couple jumps at the fish when I first introduced the toads, but the fish are too fast for the frogs to catch. I don't think they even know the shrimp are in there.

I built it from scratch using chuck gadd's design, blue styrofoam insulation, great stuff expanding foam, epoxy, paint, sand, and silicone.
