Paludariums

So, in the recent AFM there's an article about Paludariums, basically half water half land tanks. The LFS has one but its realy diffrent from the one described in the article. It has a bunch of levels. So does anyone have one or know how to set them up?

I've thought about setting one up some time back and found a lot of information on-line. I don't think you will have much trouble finding what you are looking for. Good luck if you decide to start one up. They look cool as

I have done a few different types over the past few years, including a few for some zoos.

Sorry I wish I knew of some sites because I love the way paludariums look! I think it is fantastic the way they look. What I do not like about them is the size that one must be to be successful. I also think that many people have problems with their land animals ruining the water quality for their fish. A few of the people I know are hesitant to invest in the fish too much as their land animals eat them (turtles namely). Good Luck though!

No, but I can probably get some pretty easily...I have a friend that is shutter-happy, and he visits one zoo a fair bit...and owns one of the others.

If its not too much trouble, pics would be great. I can just go to the zoo website if thats best. Such projects are very interesting to me.

The zoo has no photos on their website, either, and my friend's zoo's site is still in its infancy stages.
