About

Your imagination is a landscape of infinite possibilities! The 29 gallon aquarium outer tank allows the marine animals to move 360° around the 10 gallon inner tank. The first truly inspiring optical illusion combining reptiles,fish, amphibians, arachnids, and more!

We are dreaming big and hope through crowdfunding we can expand our current 29 gallon prototype to larger tanks with bigger animals. With your support as a backer, we can make this incredible concept a reality. 

Please share and show our project to your friends and family!

How does it work?  - Through our unique design using 2 separate tanks, water animals can swim around land breathing animals safely. 

What do I get with the 29 Gallon Terraquarium Kit?

-29 Gallon Outer Tank

-10 Gallon Inner Tank  

-4 Clips to keep the Tanks in place  

-Front and Back covers for Outer Tank  

-Mesh screen cover for Inner Tank

What kind of animals can I use? - Please see a brief list provided below. We suggest you discuss with your local pet store or herpetologist.

How do the animals react? - Depending on the personality of your animal, it may be very interested in the fish swimming around it or completely ignore it.  We have seen both cases and suggest using docile animals that are calm in nature. The fish have never seemed to notice the animals in the inner tank and react normally.

Can the Terraquarium be a saltwater tank? - Of course!  There is a lot of work involved with saltwater tanks, but worth the beautiful reward.

Can I buy in a store? - We are planning on building an online store before the end of the year and hope to eventually sell Terraquarium's in your local pet store.

 Do you ship outside the US?  - Due to the high costs involved, we do not currently. We are trying to find the best and cheapest way to ship internationally. If you have any thoughts or suggestions, please contact us!

Is there a warranty? - Yes! There is a 5 year limited warranty on leaks only. Cracks and damages are not covered. Any modifications will void the warranty.

___________________________________________________________

The Terraquarium is comprised of an outer 29 gallon tank with an inner 10 gallon tank.  Through the design, an optical illusion can simply be created using various plants to mask the inner tanks seams.  There are 4 clips to keep the inner tank in place to offset the water displacement.  It is important to use 12 lbs. of substrate in the inner tank to ensure the amount of stress on the tanks is balanced.

The following dimensions are in inches (L x W x H): 

29 Gallon - (30" x 12" x 18") 

10 Gallon - (26.75" x 6.5" x 16")

_________________________________________________________

After consulting with a Herpetologist, the climate in the Terraquarium fits best with animals that enjoy a humid environment more than 60%.  Please discuss with your local pet store or herpetologist on what animals you decide to put in the Terraquarium.  A brief list of animals that fit the climate exceptionally well are as follows:

-Green Anoles

-Green and Grey Tree Frogs

-African Dwarf Frogs

-Fire Bellied Toads

-Day Geckos

-Golden Geckos

-House Geckos

-White Lined Geckos

-Grass Lizards

-Skinks

Please spread the word and make this project a reality. Thank you so much for your support!  Cheers :)

Risks and challenges

As this is our first Kickstarter project, there is a learning curve with the whole process. We have established relationships with our manufacturers, packaging and shipping partners to ensure we create the highest quality product.

The biggest risk is ensuring individuals that support our project understand the importance and value of the animals lives they are putting in Terraquariums'. We had a study done by a Herpetologist to understand the best animals suited for this concept and we have listed them above.

We hope people follow the general guidelines laid out regarding this issue so peoples' pets do not come to harm. The list is not restrictive to other species, but a general outline of animals that would work well.

We plan to overcome this challenge by helping to educate and ensure our backers and future buyers, understand the potential risks.
