Hi everybody,
I would like to share my journey into building my first Paludarium. I did take around 1000 pictures along the way and will add as much as needed to explain all the steps I did during the building process.
Building the Paludarium was a lot of joy and since it was my first attempt creating a visual pleasing and functional Tank, it also was a lot of frustration.

It all started while randomly browsing the web and coming across a picture of a Paludarium. I thought wow that looks cool, so I looked it up and did some research over the next couple days. Seeing more pictures and videos on YouTube, I made the decision to build my own. Daily I looked into classified ads, eBay and so on to find an affordable tank for my project since I wasn't ready to shell out over $100 for a new 40 Gallon Breeder. Most of the tanks offered weren't the right size or scratched up so badly that they just would not be usable.

2 weeks went by and I found an advertisement from Petco offering all tanks for 50% off. I did not had to think long, went on their website and ordered one for pickup.

So there it was:

Aqueon 40 Gallon Breeder
Lenght - 91.90cm (36.19'')
Height - 43 cm (16.94")
Width - 46.35cm (18.25")

Office supplies Automotive exterior Wood Shipping box Bumper

I did had a Cube storage which I planned to use as my stand since it had the perfect height, so when I sit on the couch I can look straight into the Paludarium.
The Cube storage I got a long time ago from Walmart.

Better Homes & Gardens 8 Cube Storage Organizer
Height - 78cm (30.7")
Length - 147cm (57.8")
Width - 39 cm (15.3")

The width was not big enough to fully set the tank on it, so I went to Lowes and bought a board (cut in store to length of the stand) plus some supplies:

Metrie 3/4-in x 20-in x 6-ft Square Unfinished Spruce Pine Fir Board
$ 32.53
Minwax Polyshade Espresso
2" Brush
Sanding Paper 9x11" 220grit

Plant Table Window Wood Rectangle

Sanded the board and applied the first coat of polyshade.

Brown Plant Rectangle Wood Table

The next day i filled the tank about 6" with water to test for leaks. After 24h and no leak, I pumped out the water. Got the pump from Harbor Freight :

158 Gallon Fountain Pump
5 Gallon Lowes Bucket
3/8" Inner Diameter clear Vinyl Tube

Plant Window Flowerpot Houseplant Wood

Sanded down the board before applying the second coat of Polyshade.

Table Furniture Wood Flooring Floor

Wood Table Flooring Floor Wood stain

I repeated that process for the next 3 days, sanded and applied 3 more coats until I liked the color and shine. I used the Polyshade since it does seal the wood, which I thought is a good idea because there will always be some water drops when working on the tank. The final result ended up like this.

The next step was building the lid. I created a 3D drawing in SketchUp which made it easier to measure, make adjustments and see what the final product will look like.

I bought a 2' x 4' plywood at Lowes to build a prototype of the Lid.

Since I am living in an apartment I do not have the space for a miter saw, so I roughly cut out all the pieces with a jigsaw.

Now it was time to get better boards for the Hood. I bought from Lowes( cut in store to length) :

1/2-in x 4-in x 3-ft Square Unfinished Pine Board (Cut to 91.5cm)
$3.96 x 2 = $7.92
1/2-in x 3-in x 3-ft Square Unfinished Pine Board
(Cut to 89.6cm)
1/2-in x 4-in x 2-ft Square Unfinished Pine Board
(Cut to 43.5cm)
$2.83 x 2 = $5.66
Minwax 1qt Oil based Espresso Stain

I ended up using the top board from my prototype since it was cut pretty straight.

Gave them a good sanding with 220 grit sanding paper and stained them the first time.

After the first coat it looked like that.

So I knew the next couple of days I will have to repeat the steps at least another 3 times. Every night I sanded and applied 1 coat of stain letting it dry for 24 hours before sanding and staining again.

Turned out pretty good. I the applied 3 coats over 3 nights of Polyurethane to seal the wood since I don't want water and humidity to break down the wood.

I will continue the Story tomorrow, talking about how I put the lid together (a nightmare with a dowel jig).

Staining and sealing of the Hood was done, on to assembly. I did not want to use screws or nails to put everything together since they will always be visible no matter how good you cover them up.
So I looked for a tool to get dowels into the wood to give the frame some strength. I found at Home depot a Dowel Jig and a dowel set at Harbor Freight :

Milescraft Joint Mate Dowel Jig for Corner, Edge and Surface Joints
Drill Master 1/4 In. Doweling Accessory Set, 34 Pc

Camera accessory Musical instrument accessory Auto part Plastic Font

Rectangle Electric blue Metal Electronics accessory Font

Having watched some videos on YouTube I thought drilling some holes will be quick and easy. But all of the videos showed how to use it on the long side of their boards, I however needed to get the holes in the end side of the boards which only has 4" and was therefore not big enough to get the dowel jig set up correctly. I tried clamping the board to the table and holding the Jig by hand but the holes were messed up. I tried clamping the board to the table, clamping the Jig to the boards but drilling two fitting holes were still impossible. I tried to measure the holes, mark it and drill by hand and they still did not end up matching. Hours later and frustrated as I was, I just drilled 6 holes in all of the sides of all boards and connected them by trial and error. It didn't look pretty but ended up working. The holes were covered anyway once the frame was assembled.

So I filled all of the holes with wood glue and dowels and cut off the end from the dowels I weren't using. Then added more wood glue and connected the boards.

To apply even pressure and hold everything together while drying I bought from Harbor Freight :

PITTSBURGH 1 In. X 15 Ft. Ratcheting Band Clamp

Its basically a ratchet strap with 4 Plastic corners which you can easily adjust.

Here is a picture on how to attach the Piano hinge to the lid opening.

After the dowel jig nightmare I decided no more dowel hole drilling and attached the top part of the Lid with corner brackets to the frame.

Next up was attaching the lights. I got from Walmart 2 LED under cabinet lights with 1300 Lumens each. They are super bright, don't use a lot of energy, they were lightweight and did not produce much heat. You can link a couple of them together with the included cable so you only have to use one power cord for all of the lights you use.

To protect the Lights from dust, dirt and moisture I bought a glass from Lowes. They did cut it instore to my desired length for free. The width of the glass fit perfectly to cover the whole area.

To hold the glass in place I used corner braces with small pieces of floor protectors :

For my background I used corrugated plastic from Lowes. Since this was my first Paludarium build I wanted to be able to have everything removable in case something goes wrong and I have to start over again. Nothing is glued in permanently.

From the dried foam i had leftover i thought a water feature would be nice. Another nightmare started. Failed attempt number 1

I added more foam to the piece and let it dry for 24h.

While the water feature was drying i started to make the 2 sides for the background. i added some great stuff under the bark and put some weight on it to keep it in place. The next day i filled the empty spaces with more foam. After one more day i carved the foam to remove the excess.

I let the background dry for 48 hours and worked in the meantime on my wavemakers. I added 2 of them to keep the water in motion so that there will be no build ups and all of the water will be filtered.
In the false bottom i added 2 cutouts for easier access to the wavemaker in case I need to take them out for cleaning or once they stop working. I covered the eggcrate with Window screen and sewed it on with fishing line.

First i thought I could use the Cannister filter to supply the misting nozzle. I connected the 1/4" faucet adapter to the Filter output. They do require a low volume - high pressure pump to operate as I found out later. So that didn't work as planned.
