110 gallon paludarium build
#1
So I found this awesome deal on a 110 gallon aquarium, 48x18x30", and decided to build a paludarium with it. I have already drilled holes in it for drain/ return. I also went ahead and started on the background. I'll post pictures tmw of what I have so far

I finished the aquatic side which was quite the battle having a steep slope and ended up with this. I'll start planting the aquatic part today as well. My goal is to simulate a "dry" and a "wet" season by always having different water heights.

Looks great! How did you manage to maintain the steep slope?

So my p;lan is to make this a seasonal paludarium and made sure the aquatic plants I use could grow fine out of the water too...Here is what I have now.

Looks good Chris! Somehow I am envisioning brackish water and fiddler crabs and 'skippers.

maybe cause of the sand? This will house killiefish, tetras, and maybe some apistos but doubtful. As far as land animals Im undecided

This tank is only a month old and will start lowering the water in about two-three months after the aquatic plants get more established
