How To Turn an Aquarium into a Terrarium

There seems to be a lot of mystery involving terrariums. Mention one and people run away in fear. I don't know why, it's really quite simple. Let me show you.

Lee Anne - Just wondering if you still have this terrarium set up? If so, how are all the plants and the fish in the smaller aquarium doing 2 years later? If you still have it, I would love to see a photo of how it looks today.

I tried this idea many, many years ago and I loved it. I don't remember why, but had to dismantle it. Maybe because we moved.

One of the local pet stores has a similar set-up and they have rare frogs in it. It looks so cool. Like a mini tropical forest.
What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.

Very cute! Thanks for the update! Did you remove the smaller aquarium (as it appears that you did)?
