Water plays an important role in the life of all animals. It is important for temperature regulation, nutrient absorption, digestion, body weight and health. In addition, many types of water need for a short or long period of time for certain phases in their life such as coupling, egg deposits, development (larvae phase) or for moulting. In the wild, events such as seasonal floods or heavy monsoon rain provide vital conditions. If water is not available for a long period of time, the animals cannot multiply or even die. TERRARIUM MEETS AQUARIUM - The Exo Terra Paludarium is a semi-aquatic terrarium habitat that mimics a rainforest, swamp or river and can accommodate both aquatic and terrestrial animal and plant species. The word paludarium comes from the Latin word "palus", which stands for swamp. A paludarium combines the best of two worlds: the lower part has an extra high front floor glass, behind which a greater amount of water or a higher water level can be accommodated. This allows you to install a larger part of water or aquarium that allows you to keep aquatic animals and plants next to the land or terrarium part. Part of the water area may consist of a double base to support the land section, accommodating and hiding appliances such as filters, pumps and water heaters while also acting as a biological filter medium. Run the water from the filter pump through your terrarium along the back wall with live plants and moss. You can also create waterfalls that gradually let the water fall back into the water tank. Waterfalls look beautiful and help to oxygenate the water and filter biologically. Live plants and moss contribute to the filtration capacity of your terrarium. This type of setup allows you to create an effective filtration system that mimics the process of biological filtration in nature. A fully functional paludarium provides a constant source of clean water, which is essential for keeping semi-aquatic species. Basically, it is a small, complete ecosystem. The unique root-shaped back panel provides additional climbing options and simulates a natural Banyan tree root environment. The front doors can be opened separately to reduce the risk of "breakout" while allowing easy access for maintenance and feeding. A special lock prevents animals from accidentally opening the doors. The top made of fine mesh metal fabric and the associated good ventilation allows UVB and infrared light to penetrate the terrarium. For decoration or cleaning purposes, it can be easily removed completely. On the back of the cover there are 5 lockable cable or hose openings on both sides to install waterfalls, pumps, aquarium heaters, sensors, etc. in the terrarium. Check the water regularly to check the water quality and the effectiveness of your filter. Partial water changes can help remove toxic substances or improve overall water quality. Never completely change the water - unless it is really necessary - as this also removes beneficial bacteria and organisms. Set up a paludarium and enjoy a stunning rainforest landscape in your living room!
