Re: 300gal paludarium project
Thank you all so much for your comments and encouragement. They are much appreciated!
In response to a few of your questions -
rcteem - I'm actually still not sure what I want to do in terms of inhabitants. I know I'm putting a bunch of fish in the aquatic portion but I haven't yet decided what's going in the emersed portion. To begin with I think I'm just going to try to get some nice flora going.
Smenigoz - we're only going to be in this apartment until next summer (admittedly not the best time to begin such a huge project, but I wanted something to keep myself entertained). I actually wanted to do an even wider tank but was limited by my door width. The tank is 28" (about 31" when factoring in the plumbing on the back) and my front door is 36" so I do have some clearance when the time comes to move. Given how heavy this thing is, I'm already dreading that day.
