Fog is rolling in on the paludarium tonight. Can even hear the spring peppers singing away (sound on) :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vt-gF7qabMA

Thanks Ken. It's doing really well, much better than expected. Most research I did before building this said that you'll lose plants for a short period of time as they acclimate to being planted in the new environment. So far though only thing that has changed is my one ficus bonsai on the left dropped its leaves and died back a tad. Which is normal for replanting/moving a bonsai tree, that happens to me every spring when I take all my trees out of the overwintering spots and put them outside. But it already has some new buds popping. And a few spots of the moss on the back rock have browned, but other than that so far so good which is a bit surprising to me.

Palurdarium is fully cycled now so added some life to it today in the form of four giant danios, 2 doz bloody mary shrimp, few guppies and few snails.

Added four male fancy guppies today. Hard to believe because guppies are such a common fish, but these are actually the first time I have ever owned guppies.

I know, I dunno what is happening to me. First shrimp, then danios and snails, now guppies. I hope my cichlid card does not get revoked :D

Very cool! I loved the video. Have you thought about collecting your own fish (natives)?
