I love paludariums and will be following with interest!
Awesome! Yeah paludariums are fun and create all kinds of new challenges.I love paludariums and will be following with interest!
Awesome I appreciate you taking the time. Hopefully the jumbled up ball of ideas in my head come to fruition and I can pull off my vision. Only time will tell.Just read through your previous build. Can't wait to see how this one turns out!
Ha! In it's defense I did tear apart probably the only home it's ever known. That'll drive any snail to drinking.I think one of your MTS had been drinking!
Yeah trying to incorporate the rule of thirds as much as I can. It gets a little more tricky with this tank since the front pane is 18" and the back 28". I have concluded I will use the front pane as far as measuring and the rule of thirds. This is mainly due to what water depth I want and the size of the rocks. As far as stabilization the clay can't be under the water or it get all mushy. I started playing with making a cradle out of eggcrate, I am thinking I could cover that in pond foam to further secure it. Hopefully it will be a valued tank by the time I'm done.Can't help with Iwagumi arrangements other than shooting for the generic "rule of thirds" focal point design... As far as stabilizing, what about making the clay as used in your previous build to make a custom foundation to keep the rocks in place? I really hesitate to give advice because you're pretty far beyond me creatively, but I look forward to see what you come up with! I'm sure whatever you do will really "tie the room together" :icon_wink
Ha took me a minute.I can only assume this is an aquarium with only fish that swim forwards the same way they do backwards?
Thanks! A 125 paludarium will look awesome. As far as info dendroboard has some tank journals of paludariums that I found helpful as they are quite detailed. There's always youtube. Also looking for inspiration the annual AGA contest has a paludarium category that many times will have the aquascaping materials and plants they used laid out. It's pretty cool to see how the paludarium has evolved throughout the years.Just joined this forum. My wife and I are about to take on a DIY paludarium. Got a used 125 gallon tank and hope to learn enough to avoid some major problems. Just reading your thread has been very educational. Looking forward to following you along. Any suggestions of where I should look for info would be appreciated. At this point we know very little so please bear with us if we ask what might be a silly question.
