Default Paludarium(sp?) questions-

Hello all!
I am going to be taking on a project soon enough- a 65 gallon. It is a reef tank as I type this, but will hopefully have the stuff sold soon enough. I have done numerous tanks, all with false bottoms. I would like to do a palad. with this, and have cardinal or neon tetras in the bottom. Maybe a 10-12" deep water section.
Any advice on proper set-up would be helpful. I'm not quite sure what I will be doing for plants- probaly something very minimal. I do want alot of ferns towards the top, as I am trying to do the whole danish look. The tank itself does have an overflow, and I plan on drilling some holes in it where I want the water level to be. I have a sump and all, and will probaly run carbon in it. As for the land section, I will be doing a styro rock background like HKs... For the water section, I will be doing real rock walls, mainly so as to keep the water levels somewhat contained (don't want crazy PH shifts due to the grout/concrete.
Also, does someone have an idea on where I should mount fans for airflow? I thought if rigging something up in the overflow, so as it will blow gently right into the tank. IMO, airflow is what greatly contributes to alot of these nice tanks you see.
OK, enough already! Look foward to talking with you all!-Adam
