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!

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! :)

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.

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.

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! :)
