20" Vertical Rainforest Emulating Enclosure (20x16x16)
The Rainforest Emulating Vivarium simulates a natural habitat with an innovative internal air flow system and water flow system (patent-pending). Function is paired with minimalistic design so the enclosure becomes a work of living art. Front entry constructed to prevent fruit fly escape.
The active, flow-through system creates a more balanced, healthy environment that is less prone to die-off, environmental crashes and mysterious deaths. Most of these systems can be automated, giving your more time to enjoy your vivariums.

It is critical to have air and water movement in a vivarium to prevent bad bacteria, disease and fungal growth. With our systems, we have essentially achieved the miniaturization of a greenhouse. There are many benefits of acrylic - and also many misconceptions! The history of acrylic dates back to discoveries in the late 1700s, with manufacturing of acrylics beginning in the early 1900's. The acrylics of today have seen significant improvements over those of even 30 years ago, resulting in many of the benefits you can read below. Want to know more about the history of acrylic?

How It Works
Our patent-pending Air Flow System pulls air from one part of the vivarium and pushes it through to another part of the enclosure ensuring the plants receive constant air movement. This system significantly improves on existing passive air systems that rely on vents and screens to move air. Good air flow is important in temperature control and stability, equalizing humidity throughout the vivarium, and keeping bad bacteria and fungus from getting out of control.
The Water Flow System (patent-pending) is also a separate chamber within the vivarium that hides a small pump and humidifier (ultrasonic fogger). This chamber also accommodates the addition of a heater and/or chiller (not included) which would allow you to simulate day/night temperature fluctuations. The pump pulls water through the substrate, filters the water and aerates plant roots, and pushes the water over a drip wall or other water feature.
The water flow also activates the humidifier, which produces a mist that rolls through the vivarium just as clouds roll through the treetops of a rainforest. And, all these systems can be synchronized with controllers or timers so you can spend more time enjoying your hobby.
