What Sets Us Apart

is our commitment to the principles of bioactivity. We believe that every habitat should be a living, self-sustaining ecosystem. By carefully selecting a diverse array of plants, invertebrates, and microorganisms, we create an environment where the natural processes of decomposition, nutrient cycling, and self-regulation take place. This results in healthier and happier inhabitants, reduced maintenance requirements, and a visually stunning display that will captivate anyone who lays their eyes upon it. Whether you're looking for a custom-built vivarium for your beloved reptile companion or a lush terrarium for your collection of exotic plants, our team is ready to turn your vision into reality. We take pride in our attention to detail, ensuring that every aspect of your bioactive habitat is carefully planned and executed, from the selection of the appropriate species to the arrangement of rocks, branches, and naturalistic elements.

Our Founding Story

The Habitarium originally began as a homeschooling project for our girls. It sprouted from a simple curiosity about reptiles and amphibians, gradually blossoming into a genuine passion for nature and the environment. Our journey into the natural world exposed us to the circle of life, sparking our desire to create our first habitat.

The excitement of delving into an unfamiliar arid desert ecosystem and welcoming a new family member, Lemon the bearded dragon, was exhilarating. However, our enthusiasm didn't stop there. We integrated this experience into our school science curriculum and introduced new companions, the tiny Isopods.

As we immersed ourselves in the study of Isopods, we were captivated by the diversity of species. This fascination compelled us to expand our collection, constantly seeking more. The allure of these creatures was so powerful that we found ourselves drawn deeper into their world.

Driven by the urge to share our newfound friends and knowledge, the concept of the Habitarium was born. It became a platform for us to connect with others, showcasing our discoveries and the charm of Bioactive Habitats!

We are committed to promoting education by providing insightful experiences that transcend traditional boundaries. Our ethical practices guide us in every aspect, ensuring the well-being of the environment and all living beings.
