Frequently Asked Questions About Reptile Tanks & Terrariums

How do you stack reptile tanks?

Stack reptile tanks using stacker kits specifically designed for use with the reptile tanks you have. You can also find some vertical tank systems that come with multiple compartments. Do not stack reptile tanks without properly securing them together, and avoid stacking any more tanks than recommended with the stacking kit you choose.

What is the difference between a tank and a terrarium?

The difference between a tank and a terrarium is that a terrarium is made to house non-aquatic, or land-based pets while a fish tank or aquarium is made for aquatic or semi-aquatic species. Many terraria intended for use with reptiles are also referred to as tanks—and they may strongly resemble fish tanks—but these will not usually have the strength to safely contain water. You may also see pet habitats referred to as vivarium, paludarium, insectarium, etc., so the exact terminology can get confusing. Be sure to read the product details and instructions for use on any tank before you buy. Chewy always clearly lists the reptile, fish or other pet type for all tanks, terrariums, aquariums, and cages.

Can reptile tanks and terrariums hold water?

Reptile tanks and terrariums are not designed to hold water. They usually have thinner glass than fish tanks and weaker seals not designed for the weight of water. Many reptile tanks and terrariums have ventilation holes and drains that make water containment difficult, as well. Choose an aquarium instead if you need something that will hold water.
