    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...

    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...

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.

    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...

    Hello, I am new here and while I have kept fish (African cichlids) in aquariums in the past I was hoping to start a new project, a paludarium. I have done some research on them and I am hoping to keep one that is relatively self sustaining, for example I was hoping to keep the prey for the...

    Hi there, I am new here and happy to see a lot of hobbyists helping each other out. I have a little experience doing aquascapes and a large planted wall in my small back garden.

    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...

    I am currently converting a 75 gallon aquarium into a paludarium! This is my first paludarium and I kind of did things backwards, instead of doing the background first i did the dam thatll be separating the water and land first. Instead of buying great stuff (will have to order) I used this...
