Glass Terrariums


Fish tanks and fish bowls make perfect containers for terrariums for a few different reasons. First off they are glass so they allow a lot of sunlight. Secondly they are waterproof which means nothing will ever leak out of them. This is important if you need to water your terrarium a lot and it is very important if you want to put some kind of a water fountain or a waterfall in your terrarium. And, a really nice thing about using a glass aquarium is that they come with all kinds of accessories such as covers, lights, backgrounds and pumps. So if you have an old glass aquarium that isn't being used you might want to consider transforming it into a terrarium. I have plenty of projects that show you how this is done.
