    Herpetological Society good place to find aquariums. Iguana owners turn in their iguanas in the aquariums they were being held in. Look your own chapter up. I got 6 100 gallon tanks in pristine condition from mine. Just sitting in someone's back yard collecting water.

    I know it may sound like a good idea, however, terrariums should not be used for aquariums, as they are not engineered, designed, or manufactured to hold water. They lack the proper center bracing that an actual aquarium will have and could be dangerous to fill with water.
    This statement comes directly from my herpetologist friend, who worked in the snake house at the OKC Zoo for a number of years.

    Yes, you have to make sure they are aquariums and not terrariums.

    I got a large stack of Laguna tubs from someone who was using them for tortoises.
