I saw your first video and was inspired to make a vivarium. It’s been running for a month and I have three poison dart frogs coming to inhabit it. I’ve seen on Reddit and other forums, dozens of people who have been inspired by your videos and want to make paludariums (with the shrimp and the crabs and everything). It’s become a kind of a meme; it’s known as “the video” (that got everyone into vivariums). Keep going! You’re super talented and I can’t wait to see what you make.

These are always so beautiful, and I admire your work and creativity. I would like to see more. I have a build in mind, or an idea for one. It would be similar to the Cannibal jungle, but have a waterfall built into the back and to be flowing into the river. Maybe frogs could reside there as well as Droseraceae. Wolf spiders would also be a nice addition. But like I said, very pretty and very inspiring💯

Make sure to add root tabs to the water where the stem plants are, or aquasoil. They won't get enough nutrients otherwise.
Firstly the tank looks great, I am very exited to see more on this tank and all of your other projects. Each is a standout in my recommended section Secondly I would personally say to put an arboreal tarantula species in the tank, Specifically the Avicularia minatrix; from what I’ve researched they actually live in the bromeliads

It looks awesome! I love to see the work that these palidariums have put into them. Makes me amazed and it both makes me want to try it and not, due how complicated it is lol May i ask if you know how much electricity does a palidarium like this need? (Pumps, light, timers, etc)

Just a quick tip: When connecting tubing to elbows, you can use a lighter or a heat gun to soften up the tube.

You should connect this to the cannibal ecosystem, but it’s only connected in the water, so the crabs and lizards can’t come in, but the others can, also, they could have more space. And maybe you could innerduce some fish to it too

Thanks for your inspiring videos. You actually got me thinking about building my first paludarium. I am excited. I compared the instructions that you gave a year ago with this one. For the first one you put a filter in the false bottom. Did the tube go through the foam? In the second build you only used a water pump and you lead the output water to the other side of the pond (as a river). And you also added an air vent system. Can you explain the advantages and disadvantages of both approaches. Thanks.

@@jamesmcgraw176 Of course, it will come out cheaper, but you need to study many nuances on your own, watch videos, ask on the forums. For example, a homemade lamp for 20,000 lumens, 98 cri with dimming cost me about $ 150. I like this process, you learn a lot of new things. And I also like gradual assembly, because.
