#400: 18L Paludarium Volcanic rocks.swamp

Zhanglixian jinan, China


Nicely done but I would have begun the 3 slanted stones more to the right so they would have ended farther away from glass wall.
— Cory Nudelman
This setup looks very natural and resembles something you'd see in nature. I enjoy the selection and textures of the plants as well. The water feature looks like it's filled with algae or cyanobacteria so I'm not sure how viable this will be long-term.

This is another of those "just barely a paludarium" tanks. A tiny skim of water on the bottom does not make the tank a paludarium in the meaning of this contest.

That said it is a lovely display in its own right and valuable from that perspective!
