Terrariums

In the past times of discovery, aquariums, vivariums, and terrariums played quite a useful role. Scientists and live specimen collectors used these to transport, and sustain fish, animal, and plant life in artificial, yet close to natural habitat, conditions.

They are still very popular. I guess, it would be hard to find a grown-up, who never had a tank with fish, exotic lizard, or turtle at some point.
I had a fish tank. Loved it to start with, then got bored, and ended with an empty aquarium, that needed to be put to new use. That's how my first terrariums happened. Terrariums are easy to make, highly decorative, and educational. Desert, Rainforest, -nearly all natural conditions can be simulated in a terrarium. Here, is HOW TO DO IT
