    The correct definition of a vivarium is a tank with inhabitants. You can google the difference between vivariums, terrariums, paludariums etc.

    Looks great. the thing with fittonia is that if the plant gets too wet it will have yellow leaf . Even in terrarium fittonia can be difficult. I had some develop wet rot on the leaf (prolly inadequate light and air circulation

    My 2ft Vivarium

    The latest set up with fern and Brom is good due to the high humidity levels

    Money plant while easy can develop brown spots due to too much moisture as the cells burst

    Hi there friend, really been a while.
    Thanks for your positive comments, by the way my vampire crab babies have taken over the original office tank as the adults have died off (due to old age most likely).

    Hi veridical, thanks for the tip on fittonias, I'm still trying to get different coloured plants aside from green but they tend to die off after a few months.
    Space is always an issue for me, hope to set up a 4x2x2 vivarium tank one day. Perhaps when I move to a bigger house.

    I like fittonia but they are temperamental. It's hard to balance the soil as you keep your vivarium pretty wet

    My 2ft Vivarium

    How about cryptanthus. I never had crypts so I can't say how durable they are.

    Hi bro CardinalTetra.
    Care to share what brand or type of silicone you got and where you bought them from.

    I recall not all silicon are aquarium safe. Planning to build a 3ft vivarium.

    I like the corkbark background idea. Was thinking of incorporating it with the pu foam sealant spray too. Saw it on youtube (GreatStuff Pond sealant) not sure if they have similar foam spray that is aquarium safe here.

    I just use normal clear silicone that you can buy from any hardware store. I'm not too concerned about it being not aquarium safe, as since the vivarium is not filled with water unlike an aquarium. I've not used the GreatStuff sealant before but I'm assuming you are referring to the GreatStuff expanding foam that most people use in the US. I heard that you can get them either online or at a store in ubi area but they don't come in cheap.

    The tank is starting to take off..Thinking of adding 2 more green tree frogs and a couple of baby bullfrogs into the vivarium.
