NEW HERE building a large tank

HELLO! this is my first post here at aquarium advice and i look forward to becoming part of your (seemingly) already great community. i hope that me not having fish at the moment and being new to the site will not give the impression that i am new to the hobby or inexperienced. a am in fact very knolegible in the area of fish. i do however have many empty tanks as i just moved and had to get rid of my fish i do plan on filling them soon though! Sadly i have no fish at the moment... but i am working on a rather large project, making a 8x4 FOOT! tank. this tank however will not be an aquarium but a paludarium! ~part land part water~ it will consist of an oak waterfall, an small pool that goes down to another waterfall, a bit of rapids, and then finally the main pool that will have about 50 gal in it... what inspired me to do this you might ask? well on a wonderful walk along the bank of a small stream here in Ohio i noticed the wonderfully diverse population among the rapids and pools of the stream, along with the intricate root systems that many of the pool-fish lived among. i was immediately hooked and went out to buy every book on Ohio streams and the fish i could find. I was very suprised to see that unlike popular belief that the cold-water fish here are boring and dull that they are very colorful and vibrant and that there are many types of these fish. i will be working on this project for a wile and may have many questions to ask but i will to be sure to keep you all posted on anything that i do to it.

i know not to cycle with animals! i personaly beleave its very crule to cycle with fish be feeders or not. at least when they're fed to another fish they're serving a purpose! sorry... thanks for all the positive comments and i will be sure to update these as the project goes along!

Wow, that sounds great! I'm glad to hear someone else is interested in something I am. I have been trying to get info on such a project but I'm not making any head way. I'd be really interested in any info you or anyone else has. Good luck!
