Terrariums, Paludariums, Aquariums, and Vivariums: What's the Difference?

Terrariums, Paludariums, Aquariums, and Vivariums: What's the Difference? - Nusaplant

If you're interested in creating a mini ecosystem for your home, you may be wondering about the different types of setups available. Terrariums, paludariums, aquariums, and vivariums are all great options, but they each have their own unique features and requirements. Here's a breakdown of the differences between these four types of setups.


Terrariums are self-contained miniature gardens that are typically made of glass or plastic. They can be designed to replicate a variety of environments, such as rainforests, deserts, or even underwater habitats. Terrariums usually feature plants, rocks, and other natural materials, and may also incorporate live animals such as insects, reptiles, or amphibians.

Terrariums are great for those who want to create a small-scale garden or habitat that requires minimal maintenance. They're perfect for those who want to enjoy the beauty of nature without the need for a lot of space or resources.


Paludariums are similar to terrariums, but they incorporate a water feature such as a small pond or stream. They are designed to replicate the transition zone between land and water habitats, such as swamps, marshes, or rainforest streams. Paludariums often feature aquatic plants and animals such as fish, turtles, or frogs, as well as terrestrial plants and animals such as ferns, mosses, and insects.

Paludariums require more maintenance than terrariums, as the water feature needs to be properly filtered and treated. However, they can be a beautiful and unique addition to any home.


Aquariums are containers designed specifically for keeping fish, aquatic plants, and other aquatic animals. They come in a variety of sizes and styles, and can be set up to replicate a variety of aquatic environments such as freshwater, saltwater, or coral reefs.



Aquariums require more maintenance than terrariums or paludariums, as the water needs to be properly filtered, treated, and balanced. However, they can be a beautiful and peaceful addition to any home, and can provide hours of entertainment as you watch the fish and other aquatic creatures swim around.


Vivariums are designed to replicate the natural habitat of reptiles and amphibians. They often feature live plants, rocks, and other natural materials, as well as live animals such as snakes, lizards, or frogs.

Vivariums require specialized equipment such as heat lamps, UV lights, and misting systems to create the proper environment for the animals. They also require regular maintenance to ensure the health and well-being of the animals.

In conclusion, each of these setups - terrariums, paludariums, aquariums, and vivariums - has its own unique features and requirements. Depending on your interests and preferences, you can choose the setup that's right for you and create your own mini ecosystem right in your home!
