    Hi. Thanks for this very informative forum.

    I’d like to try and add to the inspiration and knowledge you share with the community, with my paludarium project.

    The tank is plywood/glas.

    Filtered by a sump and equipped with an overflow.

    Rockwall, as well as the roots are self made.

    I have just begun planting the tank. Trying to stock it with slow-growing flora to ease on the need for constant grooming.

    Here’s a full tank shot of it at these early planting stages:

    A quick video to show how the water flows through the tank:

    Thanks for looking and again, thanks for your work!

    Thank you, Plaamoo, for the nice words and welcome! So nice to see a friendly face. I feel cozy already.

    I started making this tank for some Geosesarmids, but as it turned out with a bit narrow land area, I’m having second thoughts. I’m looking for a more aquatic crab, perhaps. 

    Parathelphusa pantherina could fit the bill. Gotta look into them, whether they are bound to do harm to anything else in the tank or not. And how large they get. And how they are with each other and so on…

    Most certainly there will be some hillstreamers. Just waiting for some aufwuchs on those pebbles to happen before dipping them in.

    Maybe some gobies would enjoy it there?

    I’ll be doing planting for awhile, so in no hurry to stock it, really.

    Hey, thanks again for your welcome! I hope I get to contribute to the community, also.

    No better place to ask for an opinion on ID of a hillstream loach than this?

    The first inhabitants in this paludarium, sold under “cf breviventralis”.
    Idea of the species, anyone?

    I’ll leave the ID to others. Love the video! I’ve seen gobies climb like that but didn’t know sewellia would.

    That’s a great bit of filming, gets you wondering just how many other fish can do this.

    Great tank and fantastic work on that background and wood. Looks very realistic.

    Very interesting behaviour from your Sewellia as well!

    Thanks for your words, everyone.
    Can’t wait to get more plants in there.

    Brilliant set-up and videos! The balitorid looks like what we currently have listed as Sewellia spec. ‘SEW04’?

    Sinogastromyzon puliensis apparently performs breeding migrations which nowadays involve large numbers of individuals scaling man-made structures. Have a paper with images if anyone is interested.

    Thanks for your words and the ID note, Matt.

    I for one would love to see the paper of those Sinos
