About Vivarium Works

Vivarium Works is solely owned and operated by me, Scott Allen in San Antonio, Texas. I have been building and maintaining vivariums and aquariums for over 16 years and have well over 200 builds behind me ranging from small dartfrog setups to large venomous snake enclosures. Along the way I attended Texas A&M University Corpus Christi where I obtained a B.S. in Plant Biology and a minor in Chemistry. So between my studies and vivarium experience, I have an in-depth understanding of the biochemical reactions found in vivarium systems and how these ultimately affect the plants and system as a whole.

I started out producing vivariums and selling them at local reptile shows and found that the majority of the reptile community wanted to know how to make their own cages/environments. So I began the long, complicated, and challenging task of making safe, affordable, and easy to use construction materials that can achieve equal or better detail than most zoo exhibits.

I hope you take the time to see how these materials can help you transform your vivarium from a simple tank to an exhibit.

Don't just keep your animals, exhibit them!

Please feel free to email me any questions, comments, or concerns you have about any of my products or methods on this site. I will do my best to get back to you in a timely manner, however please keep in mind this is NOT my full time job.

I hope you enjoy your stay at Vivarium Works.com and good luck on your build!
