Well, last night was a busy one for the tank world!

"The boss" and I went to IPU, King Eds, and Rona to pick up some hardware and liveware. We finished phase 3 of her Fluval Flora that I gave her for Christmas :bigsmile:



Now it just needs fish (Rummynose and Panda cories (and if I get my way, cherry shrimp :bigsmile:)) and some S. repens.
She'll probably make an account on her and post updates on her own...maybe.

And as for me, I finally ended up setting up my Paludarium that I have been planning:




Keep posted for updates on the Paludarium :lol:

Water is cleared up and hardscape finalized (thinking of adding a few more rocks).
Heres how it looks today before I go out and buy some plants at gardenworks tomorrow afternoon :bigsmile:

Added plants! Now if they all survive I'm set. :bigsmile:Wanting to add some Fissiden to the water area and some critters and I am pretty much done...Fire Belly newt, some shrimp. Thinking maybe a Vampire crab of sorts or small dart frog. Maybe micro rasboras and micro cories too??? Heheh.

I would advise against the dart frog. They don't make use of the water and the land area looks pretty small. The smaller ones need vertical space and need about 5 gallons to their own. The bigger ones need more floor space and would be far too cramped.

Other than that it looks very nice and lush.

I agree. It was an idea that I tossed out and keeps coming back. Adding a lid and feeding and all that jazz makes the idea even more unfeasible. Thanks for your input :)

After going to nearly every single LFS in the GVRD, I broke down and got a Fire belly toad from Rogers. Earlier, I also got a Dwarf African Frog from IPU.
