terrarium

Post  jikin junkie on Sat Mar 16, 2013 7:30 am

I built a terrarium out of a 55 gallon once. I used a ceramic (fake slate) floor tile and caulked it in the center of the tank. I put a layer of fish gravel on both sides and then soil and orchid potting mix on one side while the fish and water went into the other. I glued cork bark for the background on the inside of the tank to disquise my water pump spout which trickled down the cork like a mini water fall. I had a single strip light over the tank. I grew java moss, in the water and out. Makes a beautiful carpet on land. I also grew a lot of other aquatic plants on the "land" part and up the cork walls. Don't use house plants, they get too big unless you stick to dwarf varieties of violet and orchids. I tucked some small orchid species in the cork walls. Looked fabulous however my downfall was when I added a stump from outside and it started rotting (smelled so bad) it grew mushrooms on it but then it got moldy and slimy and the smell was terrible. I took it all down after that. Laughing

I have a 29 that i have half water and half spangham moss. it houses a Eastern Newt, a red belly Salamander and 3 red eyed tree frogs.

The plants are silk, but goal it it replace them with real ones.

this looks like a good resource.
