KribsDirect My dream tank is a vivarium/palludarium. Thanks for taking the time to make a writeup, who knows when I'll finally give in and do it!

Kudaria Thank you for the write up, this is the reason I'm breaking down my planted tank as well, I need the room for a vivarium.

Mind you I'm keeping the 20 g shrimp tank and my betta, but I'd like to try something different.

demonr6 That looks awesome! They have some pretty amazing ones at Sea World and whenever we go to the park I always make it a point to stop on and look at them. I am all tanked out now with two planted tanks I am waiting to work on but this could definitely be a future project worth considering.

Big Al's Online I am going to be building two more custom vivariums to match up with the one built for the walk-through. They should all look pretty neat sitting side by side!

Natural Vivarium Background - How To!


Unfortunately I have dismantled the planted aquarium and moved on to something new... Fortunately that something new is still plant related and also a lot of fun!

I thought being a plant loving community you folks could also appreciate naturalistic vivariums! I have recently made a walk through on how to create natural and realistic custom vivarium backgrounds.

Please feel free to take a look! This sort of enclosure looks absolutely stunning with or without pets inside - if you love plants, and are looking for a really cool and attractive way to display them, I highly recommend making one of these vivariums!

Hope you enjoy




If anyone is inspired and is going to give one of these walk-through(s) a try, please feel free to post up your creations! We would LOVE to see them!
