NOT a Fish Pet Aquarium?
Try something Different


Not all people are into keeping fishes as a hobby when considering a Pet Aquarium. We all are different in what we like, making the world interesting of course. I believe that is what drives certain people to taking up the hobby of keeping reptiles, turtles, rodents and also other types of water creatures.

What about keeping a big hairy crawling pet like a spider?

LEFT: Cobalt Blue Tarantula (Haplopelma lividum).

Get more to know about these great pets in this article about the Mexican Blonde Tarantula. They are in actual fact great pets apart from their scary look.

There is an advantage to keeping one (ha-ha), mom would most probably stay out of your room from now on.

The Tarantula belong to the family Theraphosidae and there are over 800 species known. They should be handled with gloves (the surgical rubber type is best), as far as possible. Do research before taking up this hobby is recommended.

If not fish, but you are still attracted towards water!

RIGHT: The gracious Sea Horses aquarium.

What a beatifull aquarium this makes and it is also very relaxing, informative, and a great learning experience to any hobbyist. They also come in lovely shapes and colours and is so gracious in movement, you will love them.

Water turtles and Jellyfish could also be something quite different for the aquarium if a waterless tank is not considered.
