For those of you looking for something outside of the ordinary and absolutely beautifu, check out http://www.variancedesign.com/. I have seen some of their displays in person and they are truly amazing, computer controlled, lushly planted works of art. They have some set up at zoos and they also make pieces for homes/offices.

Just amazing!

The folks who build these are really nice, so drop them an email. They are expensive, however, some of these are computer controlled, incredibly well designed vivaria. If you think the photos look impressive, seeing them up close will blow you away.

I am playing the lottery, hoping to be able to afford having a house with these all over the place.

They are very expensive, in the several thousand dollar range. Just to give an idea of prices go for natural vivaria, this 33cube went for $700. Dual waterfalls, 130w cf lighting, top vent, about 20 species of plants from 3 continents

Here are some pics of my current vivaria:
