Today I found this click beetle inside my BiOrbAir terrarium!  This is the third time I have spotted an insect inside this terrarium in less than a week!  This is Ampedus balteatus, a fairly common click beetle, that can readily be found in England and Wales.  I've yet to catch this beetle - so far he's been too fast for me, as soon as I am able to catch him, I will release the beetle outdoors.

Schoenorchis fragrans pictured on the 27th October 2016.  This miniature orchid was new to my collection, the plant had a number of pests residing inside its leaves and around the plant.  It's worth thoroughly examining and quarantining any new plants you buy before introducing them to your terrarium.
