    10G Paludarium Build

    Summer's here and I'm stuck at home. Why not make a paludarium for a small project?

    I'm using my 10G tank for this project. I had a single 2.5 betta divider that sparked the idea of using those dividers to divide the land and water section. I had to get two more which brought me to 3 dividers. They were enough to create a division in the tank.

    Fauna:
    Aquatic- shrimp
    Terrestrial - need suggestions

    Flora:
    Aquatic - moss and others
    Terredtiral - Venus Fly Traps and need suggestions






    Could someone pinpoint me to the right direction pertaining VFTs in this tank? I've seen a few people have them in fluorescent lights but I keep getting mixed reviews.

    I heard that VFT's don't do well without dormancy.
    You could put some dart frogs in there but they aren't good swimmers so there should be something for them to easily get on if they fall in.
    Something that might work too, glue the dividers in a horizontal position with the terrestrial stuff on top and water below, that way the aquatic stuff has more room.

    I was gonna try the refrigerator method over the winter where I take out the VFTs.

    I was thinking dart frogs but I didn't really if they would swim or not.

    I finsihed gluing them vertically, lol. I wanted to actually create a "paludarium". Instead of half water and a floating piece of land. LOL.

    I think I've basically settled on getting Eastern or Fire Bellied Newts since I don't want to risk drownign an anole.

    The start looks good.

    I love setting up vivariums. I've got 4 vertical and 4 horizontal 10 gallon tanks converted that I haven't gotten started with decorating. Some will be wet forest and some will be true water/land paludariums. I also have a 37 gallon cube I converted in Dec. of 09 that I have restarted. So fun times are ahead!

    Hmm. I don't think dart frogs and CP's would mix very well, LOL.
