Could have a tropical/carnivorous terrarium and a dessert/cacti/succulent terrarium...

One day, when I have a cat-free room, I would like to have a moss/landscape terrarium and change it up for the seasons/holidays.
That sounds cool!

I created this thread and I know @Miss Annamarie wanted to know the same thing.

So we both have spare 10 gallon tanks and something needs to be done with them! Most reptiles are too big to live in there their entire lives, so we are pretty limited.

Any suggestions?

Thank you, Ali!

How about a Praying Mantis? Definitely not for everybody and im not sure how tall your tank is but they can be great pets. I also really like giant millipedes. Have a orthoporus ornatus right now and she's great. :)

I love orchid mantises! But the lifespan makes me too sad

I would love something like this! Unfortinatly I kill every plant I've owned :roflmao:

(Even air plants and succulents :eek:)
Succulents aren't as easy as everyone makes them seem! They're only easy once you know the basics of the soil, watering schedule etc. that they need! ALWAYS replant them in different soil, I do half perlite and half regular planting soil. Retaining water and overwatering rots the roots.

I'm changing my plan for my 55g tank! I'm gonna set up my divided betta tank in a 75g when I move. I'm gonna use my 55g for hermit crabs. So I might do plants for my 10g... not sure..
