Paludarium 1.0 empty & ready to be sold

The glorious days of Paludarium 1.0 have definitely come to an end. The realtime page at is offline, all fish have been transferred to a temporary tank, and I have posted it “for sale” n a Dutch trading site.

Fish Migration

The fish that were still in the Paludarium 1.0 have been relocated to a new and temporary home in separate tank. I surely had a hard time catching them! After having removed the “land”-segment and part of the styrofoam/epoxy tree I could reach them better. They are now happily swimming elsewhere!

Emptying the Paludarium 1.0

Up next is emptying the paludarium. Getting out all of the water is not too hard. Getting the sand out is tricky though: There may be some Archirus fish hiding under the sand which are still “Missing In Action”. After that the pumps will stop, the lighting will dim. No more rain, no more mist, no more thunder. At least, for now!

Paludarium for sale

I finally put up an add to sell off my paludarium. You can see the advert here:

Paludarium for sale on

I cannot wait until the paludrium is gone. That will kick off the reconstruction of our living room, new walls, new floor. Once that is in…. Construction of Paludarium 2.0. Yess….!!!
