Hi, MFKers!

I'd like to share my paludarium project with you.
The tank is plywood/glas, 140 gallons.
Rockwall is DIY and the footwork is DIY.

Filtered by a sump with foam chambers. Pump I use is an OR3500

Planting is still at an early stage, I'm trying to find slow growing plants to help my lazy maintenance habits...

Here's a full tank shot of it.


A quick video to show the water circulation:

Thanks for looking!

Oops, I misspelled rootwork there. So, the Rootwork is DIY, was my intention.

Thanks, bbortko.
I'm a bit undecisive on what I'm going to house in this one. I started to put the tank together with an idea of some semi-aquatic land crab species being housed in it. But it turned out with not too much earthy land area.
Dunno, really.
Well, there's going to be some hillstream loaches and perhaps gobies swimming in there. But other than fish, it's still being studied...
