Huge Vivarium 60"Tall x 60"Long x 48"Deep (with stand and Canopy 100" Tall!

The Rainforest Exhibit is being built in the largest Amphibious Aquarium that Custom Aquariums has ever built!

Without the stand and canopy it is 60"Tall x 60"Long x 48"Deep. With the canopy and stand it measures 100 inches tall...8 feet 4 inches tall!

On our new YouTube Channel, we are posting vlogs about the entire build.

Here is a picture of The Rainforest Exhibit after we placed it on the stand...


A pic of me standing next to it to show you how big the tank alone is...


I will post more pics as I go along!

Hi Mike,

Good question! I have two Current Pro Led 48"-60".
However, if you know Joshua Turner OR have seen his amazing Vivarium on YouTube, he is a consultant on our project and will be making us some lights to help grow plants/moss on the lower level...here is his link:

He knows what he is doing when it comes to lighting, so we are picking his brain with our system.

Thanks for responding, Mike! I hope you subscribe to our Channel and hit the Bell Icon. we plan on posting a ton of cool vlogs, it would be awesome if you joined us and gave us your feedback whenever possible...we can always use constructive criticism!

Let me know.

Hi! Joshua just wrote me back and said that they are:

Sword ferns (Nephrolepis exaltata)

He bought them from "Home Depot but they are a great vivarium plant". I hope this helps!!!

I believe he does cuttings. But if you want, I can ask him. Let me know, but I am pretty sure he does cuttings or pulls a full one apart.

Re: Huge Vivarium 60"Tall x 60"Long x 48"Deep (with stand and Canopy 100" Tall!

Took some pictures today for a promo piece.

Posting one here to give you some more ideas of the size of The Rainforest Exhibit!

What is actually pretty funny is, when I saw it for the first time (out of the crate), I thought to myself, "WHOA, these dimensions seem a lot smaller on paper"!

That being said, I kind of wish I made it a BIT bigger as in longer, height and width the same. To spread the rise out farther. Although lighting would have been a beast!

Just so you know, there are going to be land areas almost to the top of the exhibit (and SOME SURPRISES for all my vivarium loving brothers and sisters out there), so these pics of all this negative vertical space, do not tell the whole story.
