    Hi everyone! My name is Zach. I'm 38, a builder with a few trades under his belt, a musician and artist, and a newfound paludarium maker. I haven't made one yet, and have the plans and supplies to build several over the next few years. I'm not certain this is the right site for someone who...
  2. Twin Waterfall Paludarium

    The Build itself is a two waterfall setup with the idea being the rear waterfall flows from the Oase 250 over wood into the tank. Suprisingly enough the temperature is holding despite not flowing directly into water. The rock waterfall in the front is from a pond pump that is actually underneath...

    I made this to house shrimp and vampire crabs. Waiting for stable water parameters and moss, please give your opinions! I do have quite a bit of mold on my wood (I might add some springtails). Cost around $600, and is 24x18x36
  4. Shrimp & Other Invertebrates
    The title says it all. I have a large paludarium which I just added some Neocaridina shrimplets to last night. I checked on them this morning to find that of the ten, only one was in the front, display part of the tank. The rest had found a hole somewhere and are now in the mostly inaccessible...

    Hey guys, Here is my second attempt at aquscaping. After my first ADA 60 Aquascape (see ADA60p Iwagumi scape) and a lot of obsessive YouTube (watching Greenaqua, ADA and other aquascaping videos over the years), I found that I really enjoy diorama scapes which give a sense of scape to the...

    Hello, I've built a paludarium, which is tiny. The terrestrial areas are constantly covered in water, due to a waterfall and a small hose watering the other one. I plan on putting sphagnum moss on the land area and maybe planting a few carnivorous plants there. (Maybe some Sundews) I will also...

    Hi Everyone! I am new member and would like to run my paludarium for vampire crabs by the community! This is my first paludarium and I used a tutorial online to build it inside of a 10 gallon using foam and aquarium-safe silicone. The filter is hidden in the back to create a waterfall in the...

  10. Riparium/Terrarium/Vivarium
    With everything as it has been these past few months, I've had more time to start going on local nature walks and in the process become fascinated with our native fish species. I'm in the planning stages of a native biotope tank, and the thought of constructing it as a paludarium is very...

    Hi Guys, I've been an active fish tank user over the years and plan on converting a ~130 gallon saltwater tank into a paludarium. My idea right now is to cut down the one corner outflow so that it is about 12 inches high to aid filtration and then use the other corner outflow as a water...

    Hello all, My background is in aquariums and I'm recent to the vivarium/riparium/terrarium/paludarium group. I love the concept of utilizing these types of set ups for housing animals / critters, or for generic plant display in the house. I'm passionate about ecology and I've launched a new...

    Bout that time... After taking down my 80g shallow nature aquarium, I took a bit of a break and played around with some smaller tanks... scapes not lasting for more than a couple of months, then redoing and playing again. The itch came back to set up something bigger...but something different...

    Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've posted here and am hoping to get some information on a project I am gathering ideas for. I have been maintaining reef tanks for quite some time now and finally have my dream tank set up. My old tank which is a reef ready 65 gallon I just took down and am...
  17. General Planted Tank Discussion
    I acquired a 60G hexagon tank. Very tall, spacious. I'm thinking about putting a flying gecko in it but I want to have it have a waterfall in it with a small collection of water at the bottom of the waterfall, with live plants, and very pleasing aesthetics. I know this is a large first tank to...
