 I  have  been  going  through  various  photos  recently  across  flickr  and  other  photo  sharing  sites  where  people  are  doing  this  type  of  aquascaping.  
 Some  plants  are  kept  below  water  and  some  are  above  water.  Even  i  can  see  aquatic  plants  which  usually  grows  under  water  has  grown  out  of  water..
 
 I  am  confused  thinking  about  how  these  plants  adopted?  Can  aquatic  plants  take  air  both  inside  and  outside  water?
 
 Here  are  some  photos:

 Remember  discussing  something  similar  with  Pavan  and  Umesh  couple  of  weeks  back.  I  have  started  liking  this  and  planning  to  start  something  this  weekend  probably  with  something  small.  Any  input  for  anyone  who  experienced  the  same  would  be  great.

 Paludariums
 
 
 A  paludarium
 In  a  paludarium,  part  of  the  aquarium  is  underwater,  and  part  is  above  water.  Substrate  is  built  up  so  that  some  "land"  regions  are  raised  above  the  waterline,  and  the  tank  is  filled  with  water  only  part  way.  This  allows  plants,  such  as  Cyperus  alternifolius  and  Spathiphyllum  wallisii,  as  well  as  various  Anubias  and  some  bromeliads,  to  grow  emersed,  with  their  roots  underwater  but  their  tops  in  the  air,  as  well  as  completely  submersed.  In  some  configurations,  plants  that  float  on  the  surface  of  the  water,  such  as  Eichhornia  crassipes  and  Pistia  stratiotes,  can  be  displayed  to  full  advantage.  Unlike  other  aquarium  setups,  paludariums  are  particularly  well-suited  to  keeping  amphibians.
