In this issue

Keeping reptiles, amphibians or invertebrates frequently conjures up associated images of lush tropical habitats, filled with exotic plants. Unfortunately, up until very recently, it was not possible to maintain a planted vivarium of this type for any length of time successfully in the
home. Yet now this is achievable, even for enthusiasts who have little or no experience in this area, thanks to advances in lighting technology in particular.

Here in this highly practical guide, you can learn what is involved at first hand in setting up not just a tropical rainforest enclosure, but also, at the other extreme, a desert-like environment and a dry grassland set-up. John Courteney-Smith, MRSB, FLS, who is one of the leading pioneers in this field, takes you through all these builds in a step-by-step fashion, revealing just what you need to consider, and outlines the general principles that will enable you to create a truly naturalistic vivarium, whatever type of environment you are seeking to replicate, based on the species that you wish to keep.
