Default Paludarium

I loosely based this off of a few paludariums I've seen here. It's a 56 gallon setup that was on sale at PetSmart after Christmas. I plan on tossing a few banded leucs in it in April. It's probably over-planted, but that's ok. I can always pull plants out. It's been seeded with all sorts of bugs. As for fish, etc... I dunno. Shrimp are cool. It has a canister moving the water around. I figure I have about 10-15 gallons of water in the system, so I can fit a few fish in it.

That is the best looking paludarium I have personally seen. Great job on it. How much room in the tank does the pond are take up?

That looks awesome! What kind of wood is that in the water? Oh, and I don't think it's over planted... I just can't wait til the moss takes over the wood.

That would work well for some Newts also. Like Adult Marbled newts. Good job!

The water-land transition seems a little abrupt to me. Frogs in panic can easily drown, especially when the watersides are steep. I would try to make it easier for the frog to climb out if necessary, it would be a waste if you ever lost a frog over that...
Other than that, great viv! Certainly not overplanted. The more plants the better in my opinion

Thanks! The water area is about half of the available area.

It's sandblasted manzanita. I agree... the moss is what I'm looking forward to...

It took me about a week to get it from empty to ready for planting.

There is about 275-300 sq in of land space. I will probably add a few pieces of wood at the land edges to add another 20-50 sq in.

Yup! I don't like the transition right now. I'll alter it before I add frogs.

No. It's a pod that I got from Josh's Frogs. I forget exactly what they're called. I read on DB that a few other people really like them, and they definitely look better than a split coconut shell, IMO.
