That is very cool. I have thought it would be wonderful to make a vivarium / paludarium out of a tree trunk with roots. It is good to see that done to good effect.

This is a baby Motoro stingray and just in here as a grow out obviously as these rays require much more space as they grow. This one has about a 4” disc - seemingly very healthy and comfortable.

At some point I may get a teacup just to have a small ray for a more sustainable inhabitant.

Beautiful setup!
What method did you use to build the land area? Is the land just attached to the back or is it supported below also?

Thank you!

It is a traditional FB design with egg crating with PVC supports throughout then covered in foam. The buoyancy was a bit of an issue, but between the egg crating being zip tied to supports silicones to the tank bottom and the sand substrate it held the land portion and kept from floating.

The land is divided into two sections. The right side under the stump with considerably more foam.

I’d love to look at some hi res images of this. Rays are so nice, do they have the same legality issues that pdf have?

There is no such thing as a teacup stingray. They all get big.

Regardless, beautiful tank!

I LOVE this! Nice work! I just built a Paludarium myself(54 Gal) and I can't tell you how much I love having a rainforest Aquarium in our living room! I really like your set-up! Thanks for sharing that!
