#783: 26L Paludarium Apoala

Víctor Manuel Ortiz Cruz Oaxaca, Mexico


While I really like the hardscape I don't care for the light below the surface of the water. Your aquatic section needs plants as well.
— Cory Nudelman
The composition of this scape is really effective. The symmetry helps draw your eye into the waterfall which is a great focal point. Well done.
— Tanner Serpa
Pretty but I do not believe that either of the bonsais will do well here long term. There is no thought to the water area at all except as a place for the waterfall to land and the water is not even clear. And that really does not take much work or effort for someone who has the skill to put together a display of this caliber. A paludarium is not just about rocks and waterfalls.
— Karen Randall
