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

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.

Loved the video, it's looking great!!
Guppies, OH NO, just kidding.

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

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

It's looking even better if that's possible.

Steve, your paludarium looks amazing!!!!

Thanks guys. It's really doing extremely well since setting it up. Growing like crazy. Really need to get in there and do some trimming soon I think. Here's a short vid of it from the other day https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=44tku-AZMuY&t=2s

The plants are looking great! Are you having to remove the duckweed? regularly to keep it under control?
Mon May 11, 2020 11:34 am
YEP! lol. I started with a bag of duckweed from a buddy in my local club, now I could fill a bath tub with duckweed
I moved some over into my 75g senegal bichir tank, but I also net out and trow away about a cup full every few weeks just to keep it under control.

Awesome work Steve. That video is fantastic. I almost envision King Kong coming around the corner!
