Doesn't anyone have a good link or site that explains on how to build one?

And does anyone here have a paludarium containing fish and amphibians?

Well, as usual a Google search yields the best results. Every page I was going to tell you about are in the top 10 of the link Marcos posted. I will say that I personally like Chuck's Aquarium Page.

I don't have one myself but I helped a friend set one up recently. It really wasn't very difficult to do and the results are great! We used a 55g and partitioned off a section in the middle back of the tank for land and then used pink insulation foam to create a rocky waterfall and land bridge on either end. Then everything was given a coat of quickrete to make it look more realistic. Fake plants and gravel were added and it was done. Sadly I had no say in the stocking and it is currently stocked with several goldfish, a few fire belly toads, and several anoles. I tried to inform them of the consequences but they won't listen. I haven't given up trying though.

Try this one. I think it's excellent. Step by step too!

Good find JeremyL! That is another site that I referenced a lot. It really has a great explanation and breakdown of the whole project.

Thanks Doosh Razz.
I'm pretty sure there are many ways of creating a beautiful paludarium, however that site provides a clear and basic set-up Smile.
