#176: 280L Paludarium double deck

Carlos Melin Horcades Rio de Janeiro, Brazil


This was a very nice start to this tank. I bet it is really beautiful now. I wish we'd had a chance to see the newer photos with the plants filled in. Please keep tking photos as it matures and enter it again next year!

I can appreciate the functionality of the stacked tiers for increased land area. Despite it having a lower aesthetic appeal to a more traditional layout you did an great job at blending them in. I would very much like to see how it looks now even after the contest!
