 (width x height x depth)
22.25 x 36.75 x 17.5″
(57.15 x 93.3 x 44.5 cm)

If you’re looking for a taller vivarium option to increase your hardscaping and planting potential, the Alto is it. The enclosure stands at 36.75″ tall (including light canopy) and has the exact same footprint as our Amazonia (22.25″ wide x 17.5″ deep).

It is a complete standalone vivarium package and includes both our LED light system and dual air circulation fans built in and ready to go. Imagine the Amazonia stretched vertically, with some upgraded features to help with the increased height:

  • The LED lens is now clear glass to allow deeper light penetration
  • We’ve increased the voltage on the circulation system to create greater circulation capability. A potentiometer (dimmer) is also included to reduce the voltage in case you find that you prefer less airflow
  • 2 door handles to allow easy opening and removal of the doors (standard 3″ handles can be changed out/customized to your preference)
  • The composite back panel comes standard on the Alto, resulting in a weight reduction of 13 lbs (6kg)
  • It is shipped in a wooden crate to prevent freight damage

Because of it’s size (and to ensure proper packing for safe delivery) the Alto must be shipped in a crate. There is an additional $45 deposit for shipping isolators that must be removed and returned. We include a pre-labeled box to simplify this process for you (the deposit is added to the shipping charge).

Rio Water Flow Systems

Free installation is already reflected in the current listed upgrade price.

A rushing creek in a mountain ravine, the steady trickle of water down a rocky embankment, a winding stream through a lowland rainforest… Capturing the essence of water in the wild is a worthy goal, and one we have taken deeply to heart. These environments inspire us to create microcosms of tranquility within our homes, and we have developed a system that enables you to do just that.

Neptune Systems

The Neptune Systems Apex controller has been the gold standard in providing control to complex habitat systems for over 20 years. Although it was originally designed for reef tank management, we have adapted it to control the cycles and parameters that are important to terrestrial plant and animal species found in tropical rainforests.
