Make a green wall

Our axolotl tanks require a water-free area of 15 to 20 cm for these jumping kitties, I told myself that it would be nice to use this empty space, at least on the glass part of the back.
So first you need to buy plastic mesh, which can be found cut to size at most DIY stores. The one I found is 1 meter wide. It's up to you to measure what you need.
Then you make your cuts:

then you cut small iron wires with the cutting pliers to make your hooks which will fix your netting on the tray. If you prefer, use silicone. Then you will be able to start "planting" finally rather to tie your plants (of which you will have rinsed the roots well if they were in the ground) but be sure to let the roots bathe in water! Do not over tighten with your wire to avoid breaking the rods. I used a thinner, more flexible wire to tie my plants to the fence.

Here are the names of most of the plants I have used for my living wall: Kentia de Foster, Pothos, Misère, Alocasia, Calathea, Areca, Asplenium and Papyrus. In the paludarium section you have a listing of the plants you can use. Consider varying the colors with very light greens and reds.
(I also used small squares of this wire mesh to fix mosses of different species for my nano shrimp aquariums)

Another tip: plant your plants in small plastic baskets or pots with lots of holes, and fill with clay balls.

Possibility also to use a horticultural felt.

Remember to rinse your roots well to get rid of their soil, clay.
