My New Drip Wall -20 gallon tall

0 Replies, 3056 Views

I have a new tank - its a 20 gallon tall. One side drip wall, and the one dry side for some of the plants. The water feature goes back into the corner between a forked piece of wood it looks like a cave and I really like it.
these our some more pics of my new tank.
Drip wall tanks are cool. I got one. You just don't see many people trying them.

Ive never really understood the construction of them. Is it just water running over the surface of the back wall? Like a real slow waterfall? Then the drainage part. Where does the water go? I've got a stream viv, and a little water fall viv, but have never understood the "mechanics" of a dripwall. But then, I've never hit the search button for one either. Just pretty much looked at the threads that pop up now and then and move on.

I'll get some pics up as some point.

The water is literally a drip. A very slow drip from a PVC "drip bar" with 6-8 adjustable nozzles. The very slow drip keeps an entire faux rock wall moist and wet @ 70% of the wall.

There is a central drain covered by a screen and the drained water goes into a sump / tank and then a submersible pump, pumps it back up the the drip bar.

It's really cool.Frogs love it. Plants love it. You should try a build or 2 someday.

Does anyone have a good step by step explanation of how to build a drip wall? I would definitely like to take a step up in my next vivarium and incorporate some type of drip wall feature.
