Re: 60g Paludarium w/ waterfall and bog - build log
I know a bit about heat shaping egg crate now - the time between "hard" and "melting" is pretty minimal, and if you try to flex it while hard it shatters. So patience is required.
My reading on White Clouds suggests they don't like heat, so I guess I'm worried about temps on both ends - top temp is 78ish, which is too high for White Clouds but just right for tropical fish. But then I'll have drops down to the upper 50s in winter. And the orchids really like that night temperature drop, so I encourage it by having the tank near a window. I think I'm going to stock with shrimp and then give it a year to cycle and monitor water temps, I suspect the water won't vary as widely as the air in the tank.
