Paludarium - drainage issues
I've recently begun looking into setting up a paludarium in a 38 gallon
x-high (30l x 12w x 24h). I'm choosing height over length because I want
it primarily as a terrarium for some tree frogs, but I would also like to
add some newts, fire-bellied toads, and a few fish.
I wanted to make a partition from the front left corner to the back
right, but I'm woried that the substrate in the land area will get soaked
with water as it would have no drainage. Especially since I'd like to
have a waterfall with a black pvc pipe (cut in half or less) act as a
stream letting out into the water..
So how could this this be solved (without drilling any holes)? A gravel
substrate would allow for drainage, but would there need to be
perforations in the partition? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated..
