Old Style Terrariums


Oct 30, 2010
Hi everyone. I'm getting back into the hobby after selling my last T about fifteen years ago. Since then there's been a lot of neat enclosures that have come on the market that I wish existed back then.

I used to keep some of my spiders and scorpions in a type of terrarium that I don't see much anymore. These were those aquarium looking terrariums that had either black or wood grain frames and one of the top frames would have a screen frame attached that would slide out. Sometimes the screen was on the side. These were great for a display animal.

Do they still make them? I used to see them everywhere. I had one that was about 8x8x18(or something close to that) and it was a great enclosure for a small arboreal tarantula.
