Beautifully designed paludarium with an stunning land section. The land section has a wonderful mixture of terrestrial plants with a good mix of textures and colors that really pulls the eyes to. Although the water portion is well planted the plants could use a good pruning and cultivation to really show that the water portion was equally as important as the land section. Very nicely done.

The plants off the upper section looks fantastic! There's the right amount of pink/red plants that offset the green without being distracting.

Additional Information This paludarium was created with the inspiration taken from
the valleys of Uttrakhand in India and the theme is based on rainforest.
The aquascape contains the flow of roots of different plants transforming from
terrestrial area to aquatic area creating an aesthetic detailed view when seen in real life.
The upper (terrestrial) portion is completely based on hydroponics as no soil or growing medium is used.
The setup contains two elevated cliffs, the larger one (main) on the left and the smaller one on right and a large
transitional portion in the middle. This setup is now almost 46 months old and counting.
