Huge Ecobulb Riparium Jungle for Rare Fish on DIY Branch Stand

About two months ago, I obtained a really incredible container – the giant jug that I use in this video to be specific. I wasn’t quite sure what I would do with it, though, so I left in the garage to collect dust. Eventually, I had a general idea of what I wanted to create and I got to it.

Since it’s fairly tall, I thought that a riparium or paludarium would be a cool option. However, I didn’t have a dedicated spot for it. So I began by making a stand out of tree branches. It seemed like a cool direction to go since the container itself is so unique. With that, I also felt that it made sense to include some rare fish. What better than the Orange Medaka Ricefish?

Anyway, this is how I turned an incredible container into a lush, live planted riparium setup that’s really unique. Let me know what you think of this build and enjoy the video!
