    10g Paludarium Build

    So I'm taking down some of my standard 10g tanks and decided to try my hand at building a Paludarium. I figure it will give me some practice for when I build the 20g long for some vampire crabs later on.
    I built a waterfall into the custom background, and used the background and a removable floor piece to hide the heater and filter that will power the waterfall while still maintaining access to the equipment for maintenance. It was nice that I had the materials to build this already in my garage.
    Letting everything cure for the next few days before I start adding water and plants.
    FYI, this tank might be available for purchase in the future.

    Expansion foam for the base with several thin layers of cement on top of that. Used liquid Acrylic fortifier to help increase the bond and to make it more water proof, and liquid cement color (charcoal) to get the darker color to look more like rock.
