All habitats have an Ecosystem. So what exactly does that mean? An Ecosystem is Biotic (living) & Abiotic (non-living) Organisms interacting with each other to survive & thrive. All ecosystems have one thing in common, the nitrogen cycle. The nitrogen cycle is the most important part of any habitat &/or ecosystem mainly because it keeps everything in balance.
Some examples of simple habitats kept in captivity would be:
- A Fish Only Tank with artificial decorations.
- Fish Quarantine System.
- Reptile Tank with artificial decorations.
- Reptile Rack System.
- Bird Cages.
- Rabbit Cages.
Some examples of a more advanced habitat that is kept in captivity would be:
- Coral Reef Tanks (Salt water aquarium using natural Live Rock, Hard & Soft Corals, Marine Plants, Fish & Invertebrates.)
- Planted Fresh Water Tank (Fresh Water Plants, Fish & Invertebrates.)
- Vivariums (Live Plants, Running Water, Reptiles, Amphibians, Fish & Invertebrates.)
