Re: Aquarium tear-down for PDF Paludarium
I certainly meant no offense, I'm glad none was taken. I'm fairly blunt in general, even more so when only in text on a screen.
The balance for a paladarium involves making a suitable space for the terrestrial inhabitants (presumably the frogs), and the aquatic inhabitants (fish) all at the same time. This is tricky without strong expertise with both inhabitant groups.
You will lose Isopods into the water portion of the tank. They're pretty unintelligent ;-). I've had them drown in a puddle that came from spraying the side of the enclosure ...
The gravel size shouldn't be a problem since the frogs shouldn't be in the water...
Even something "simple" like a waterfall or drip wall is going to be prone to failure.
