We have a range of styles and sizes of vivariums for you to choose from for your reptile. The vivariums are all available in lengths of between 24" and 48" and finishes that include: beech, oak, walnut and silver. These vivariums are designed to be free standing or sat on top of a cabinet.
The critical feature that a vivarium should have is an integrated ventilation system. This allows for the air to remain fresh at all times for your reptile or other exotic pets. Strong glass doors are a must when keeping a reptile for a pet.
If you will be putting together your own vivarium you will also want to make sure that you have some type of reptile tank sealant for the joints of the reptile vivarium. This reptile tank sealant will form a watertight rubber seal that is tough enough to keep the vivarium intact. This seal is harmless to amphibians and reptiles. The sealant that is used should be fast tacking and have a fairly rapid cure time. It is necessary to have an excellent adhesion to the glass of the vivarium. There should only be one component so there is no mixing and you want it easy to apply with a minimum of tools.
When you choose one of the larger vivariums there will be more room for your reptile to feel at home in. If your reptile or amphibian needs to have a lot of foliage or tree trunks or vines to replicate their natural environment a larger vivarium is the natural choice. You have several choices for fake plants to put in the vivariums. For example you have tall plants with little places for a snake or lizard to sit upon. Other foliage can help hide the snake. There are “hides” which can be placed in the vivarium for the reptile to curl under. As mentioned previously the more room in the vivarium the more options like these you can have in your tank.
You will be able to add a tank decoration on the back of the vivarium as well as place vines, branches and artificial plants for the reptile to conceal itself in. Proper lighting for the reptile’s vivarium is essential and can be found to fit the twenty four, thirty six or forty eight inch vivariums.
A reptile vivarium is perfect for all types of reptiles or exotic pets. The many styles that these reptile vivariums come in let you choose the one that is right for your type of reptile. Some reptiles need a longer vivarium for the space to move or run around in and other will need one that is taller because you have a climbing lizard. The vivariums come in a good selection of ready built vivariums which come in many different sizes ranging from 18 inches right up to 48 inches. But you will find that if you buy your vivarium in a flat pack state then you will have a larger choice of vivariums and this is why most reptile owners prefer to purchase their flat packed vivariums right here at our reptile supplies site.
you also have a wider choice of vivariums on this reptile supplies site like plastic vivariums which are quite new to the reptile world and of course another popular choice the traditional glass vivariums. Not only do we sell the vivarium tanks and also lots of useful vivarium accessories, but we also sell lots of different types of vivarium floor stands and cabinets and all these quality products come in a selection of colours so that they will fit in with your home or office décor. There are beech, oak and walnut vivariums as well as a silver colour. They are made of wood so that they are strong. Reptiles can enjoy a long life in a properly built vivarium.
Wooden vivariums being stronger than other materials can be stacked on cabinets better. They don’t usually crack, chip or shatter like an all glass vivarium might. The melamine faced chipboard panels of the vivarium are sealed around the edges with silicon to make it waterproof. If your reptile is from a desert environment or just needs to have a warm habitat wood is a very good insulator. It will retain the heat better so your energy costs will be lower while providing a good environment for the reptile.
Because some reptiles need special lighting or heating elements wood vivariums are a good choice for this reason. They can be drilled or even cut to accommodate the alterations or improvements for your reptile.
Some of the features of a wood vivarium are the glass doors used on the front of the vivarium. They are made from toughened glass so that it has about five times the strength of a normal piece of glass. Safety glass is used so that should it break the pieces are small with no sharp edges to harm your reptile.
The vivarium has two ventilation areas, one on the top and the second on the bottom. This allows for the right amount of air to flow through the vivarium, keep humidity levels correct and provide the optimum in temperature. The holes that provide the ventilation are large enough to do their job, but small enough to keep any live food from escaping.
Choosing a vivarium that has about eighteen inches or more from front to back will allow room for the reptile to roam. It also gives you the opportunity to provide natural settings for your reptile with plants, branches, tree stumps, tunnels and water or food bowls.
The vivariums are mainly shipped flat and are easy to assemble. Purchase a good reptile tank sealant so that the joints of the vivarium are protected. If you don’t have a place for your vivarium to set in your home or office you can purchase matching cabinets to set them on. They come with cabinet doors on the front which makes the perfect place to store all your reptile accessories. There is plenty of room for extra substrate, food, light bulbs and other necessities for your reptile.
