Try using a tank as a terrarium

Many of the fish tanks and aquariums in our online shop can also be used as a terrarium. A terrarium is a miniature landscape which houses rocks and plants, and may be used to keep small animals such as lizards and snails.

A terrarium can be as simple or elaborate as you wish to make it. The important thing to consider is that the terrarium is suitable for the plants or animals you wish to keep in it. Make sure that your terrarium provides your pet with enough space and the right conditions to live comfortably and happily.

If you are setting up a terrarium for an animal, think about their natural habitat. You can recreate the conditions of their natural environment in the terrarium using rocks, wood, plants and gravel so they will feel at home and have natural hiding places. Think about creating the appropriate humidity and moisture levels inside the terrarium.

There are many different shapes, sizes and designs of terrarium ranging from simple rectangular tanks to more unusual and quirky designs. Take a look at our online shop for a wide selection of tanks which can be used to create a suitable terrarium for your animals or plants.

Although an aquarium can be used as a terrarium, a purpose-built terrarium can not be used as an aquarium because they are not built to withstand the pressure of being filled with water.
