Welcome,

In this topic, I would like to share with you the experience in running Paludarium of Netherlands (Europa) biotope. This is the first project of its kind in my life and I am glad that I was given a free hand in its execution.
Paludarium established at the beginning of May this year and currently has more than a months and is doing well. But first I'll write a little bit what and how.

Paludarium has been done on "order" in the facility located in a nearby forest, which is "Boswerf". The idea was to create an affordable and well functional paludarium, where children and adults could enjoy both the parts of nature. Until now, there was an old, scratched tank. Residents are to be animals and insects living in the dutch canals, the newts, some fish, dragonflies and snails. Vegetation is mixed, so that was it as much as possible.

As the volunteer support base budget was very small, so I offered to give them some of the old equipment, the necessary things to purchased separately and I will arrange the rest. The cheapest solution was to glue paludarium on place and make a wooden cover, which includes lighting, timers, sockets, and two separate chamber with a fans.


Tank info...

Size - 130x50x70 (without cover) glass bottom 10mm, 8mm side windows.
LED - 2x 36W PLL 3200K, 4200K LED 4x3W (for local illumination of water)
Filtration - One filter, drain for the waterfall 200L / h, a filter on the window to move the water 200L / h
substrate - Thick and fine gravel, sand.
Decoration - lava stones, roots of nearby trees.
CO2 - no.
Pets - As of today, everything that swam in an old aquarium or Newt (female), snails, dragonfly (underwater version: lol:)

Photos from the building and setting up the tank. Gluing the tank as a curiosity I decided to introduce a little more fully.

Aquarium chilled 3 weeks, in this time I started the execution of the cover.
Unfortunately I only have two pictures where I plan placement of lamps, sockets, etc.

The whole was painted two times and places in direct contact with the inside of the tank three times. In the cover there are two separate chambers with fans, which are designed to ventilate the interior of the tank. As this is a cold water tank so far there are no problems with excessive evaporation of water, the situation may change in the hot summer days, so I decided ventilation as necessary.

Time to arrange something ... Hardscape.

Afbeelding

The whole stands on a pad of rubber for ponds and 2cm fine sand. To build the hardscape around 25kg lava stones, gravel 15kg 10-6mm and about 5kg of fine gravel was used. On the right side there is a filter drain pump flow 200L / h I used the roots from my own collection (specially for underwater) and those found in the woods. Unfortunately, the main root found will have to disappear for a while because it is too fresh. On drying time will be replaced with a different root, and after 1-2 months will return in place.

Last finishing touches and fitting

It's time for the plants ...

Plants is a mixture of aquarium plants and plants for ponds.
I used the excess weeping mos h.sp. japan, Peli, a big H.
Waterside plants I bought at a garden center.
Planting due to limited time and resources took several days.

These are the last pictures that I have that is, before two weeks.
Last time I was there on Friday and found the young shoots of the main root.
On Monday, I'll shoot some more photo and I will look exactly what and how.


Regards.

Just 1 comment I would have prefered Maaskeien over lavarock the rock looks good but it's not really biotoop correct imo.

Oh so nice, those Salemanders were about the first animals I ever kept in a tank when I was around 10 or so :)
they breed easy and give good offspring in a tank aswell, so many, That I was exporting youngsters to nature after 1 year :)

I still have Salemanders in my garden, the pond is specially disigned for Salemanders, frogs and toads, there are so many in my garden and I enjoy them a lot, sadly with the high woden boarding in most waters, amphibian have a hard time in holland.
it's good you give them attention like this to lots of people, so we get aware of all the damage we do by being ignorant like when we set up tropical wooden boarding on the side of didges.

Keep up the good work :d :d :d
