Great site showing the set-up of a paludarium. There area few animals for which I really want a paludarium. (All of them invertebrates, oddly enough).
Interesting natural behaviors of some fish species, such as these archerfish (Toxotes jaculatrix), are best elicited-and best observed-in paludaria.
Here are few snapshots of my paludarium, I was supposed to be studying and got distracted by the tank I'm most proud of.

The above images are from the day I set up the system. I have since added java moss to the water line where the plastic is, and I have trimmed the fern ...
