Designing and maintaining a paludarium is an incredibly fascinating and relaxing hobby. Most aquarists enjoy experimenting with emerged plant life and owing a paludarium can take that fascination to a different level. The ecosystem you create is limited only by your imagination. Create a rain forest or tropical jungle that expands from the open face design. Paludariums can be used in both fresh and salt water environments and evolve beautifully as you add new species and fauna.
