    Default ULTIMATE PALUDARIUM!!!!! build log

    Ok so this is gonna be a long standing build log but i figured id start it now and see what people think. So years ago (8-10) i built a paludarium, though at the time i had never heard of one and though i was just being super slick, out of a 55g aquarium and then built a 2 1/2 foot extention on top of it made of wood and screen. Well I really miss that tanks so i'm gonna recreate it, but better So this time i've been collecting matterals for some time now, when i can afford them that is. So this time im gonna use aluminum L brackets for the supporting fram, I learned last time as the wood eventual warped and let me tell you aluminum L bracket isn't cheap, it set me back like $130 for 5 pieces. Instead of screen im gonna use glass, with little screen tops on each side and it will have double swing doors on the front. So far i have the aluminum, the back plate of glass and the aquarium which is full planted and ready to go. Hopefully i can get the rest of the glass soon, i did just get a new contact for cheap glass so.... Anyway let me know what you think.Name:  DSC09642.jpg

    Well when i built my old one I had it up and running for 3+ years and it worked beautifuly. Im not sure whats gonna go in there yet, the last one was a multi-species tank (yes i know, not good) and had geckos, RETF, pygmy chameleons, rough green snake & salamanders. it was really cool to see all that life, but i wont be doing that agian, to much upkeep.
