Terrarium Creativity


I had grand plans for this weekend. So many fun project planned. First, there were errands to run though, which included supplies to change out our newt’s terrarium. It was looking in need of a deep intensive clean even though the newt isn’t a big fan of having his water changed.

My husband though surprised me by taking us to the pet store to buy all new supplies for the newt tank. He knew I have wanted to update the terrarium for a while. The newt’s been with us for ten years now, and he deserves better living quarters. Not that he seemed unhappy in his old tank.

So after debating and evaluating in the pet store, we bought a new tank, ~ the old one is being donated ~ filter with waterfall feature, rocks, cricket perch, and new friends, a.k.a. the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Plus, this new tank has a better lid than the old. In the old tank, the crickets would escape constantly. In the new tank, they can’t escape and Noog, the newt, can eat them at his leisure.

The only thing I am thinking at this point is adding some aquatic plants or moss, but we will see.

And, of course, building the new tank made it so I didn’t get too much else. I fussed over the thing for a long while.


Noog is barely seen in the corner. I might want to add a backdrop as he can see the cord behind his tank. He is very territorial and tries to bite the cord.


We added new features to tank: all four of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a goblin (which he had before), and a turtle and rock formation he can hide underneath.
