Vivariums vs. Aquariums
What is the diffuculty level of a vivarium compared to freshwater aquariums vs. saltwater aquariums. Is it easy, complex, etc.
Re: Vivariums vs. Aquariums
A vivarium is actually a land only set-up for reptiles/amphibians, while a paludarium is the half aquarium/land set-up that most people think of first.
I had also thought initially that it was half-water but the paludarium also came to my thoughts and I am glad someone had pointed out quite the difference between the two.
In answer to your question of freshwater vs. saltwater, I've kept both and I must say that in my opinion the saltwater can be far more demanding than the freshwater. Plenty of equipments required are absent in the freshwater hence saltwater tend to be costlier than the freshwater.
Just my two cents.;)
So this set up at the link below is not actually a viarium.
This is what i would like to do to my take.
That one actually is a vivarium with most of the tank portion being land.
Here are photos of the paludarium citing as examples:
Which would be best if i just wanted a couple of tree frogs.
I have a 20 gal and a 10 gal tank i can use
paludarium or vivarium?
lupin you should have shown mine! :twisted:
