    I have one very big problem with that tank its not sitting on my desk.

    I have possibly said it previously those natural river stones make every thing appear to be so natural not man made with every stone exactly the same shape, size and, colour.

    Roy I can't believe how gorgeous this has turned out:love: - where was I, I missed big chunks of it evolvement!:p

    From an idea, then a 'live sketch' & then suddenly it is a window to step into nature through.

    It is a piece of magic, artistry & knowledge all in one.(y)(y)(y)

    Looking like nature at its best, what does help to make it looking very natural is all that gravel.

    Roy,

    I really like the "wibe" of your paludarium! :)

    Do you make any water changes?

    I really have not idea about how to keep a paludarium so I ask some questions! :)

    Thanks for the answers Roy! :)
    I was asking that because the water looks really clean and I suppose it isn't easy to keep it like this in a paludarium! :)

    Hi Glomeridae, The water stays clean it only has a couple of snails wandering about :) Low light helps keep the algae at bay :D
    I can change the water every 2-3 weeks:whistle: I just do it when i do my other tank water changes ;)

    I am sure you have heard me say many times "If its working for you don't change a thing" and all your work proves that point.
