I don't see a need for the habitat tag; I request it be eliminated or synonym'ed to "terrariums"

  • Well you can't keep a hamster in a terrarium, nor a flock of chickens, but they still require habitats, not specifically just a cage. What about in those situations? Or is the cage tag a catch-all in those situations?

  • @Piper I think that's what the Enclosure tag was created for.

  • Really? Enclosure and Habitat? Here's the thing - tags are created in order to ease searching on a subject and to associate like items so you can find something similar to what you're looking for. Habitat, Enclosure and Cage are all pretty much the same thing from a "pet" perspective. If we're talking "a place a pet inhabits" and link in aquariums and terrariums as part of "habitat", then that invalidates the tab because I'm 99.8% certain no one looking for a "terrarium" via "habitat" wants to read about a question tagged "aquarium".

  • As it stands, there are 7 questions tagged with "habitat": 2 which are also tagged "aquarium" (for turtles and frogs), 3 which are also tagged "terrariums" (for lizards and frogs), 1 tagged both "aquarium" and "terrariums" (for substrate), and 1 tagged only "habitat", but mentions "aquarium" in the title. In all of these entries, "habitat" is redundant.

  • @Piper - there are no hamster or chicken questions tagged habitat at this time; there are only frog/lizard/turtle questions, where terrariums and/or aquarium works better. If you feel habitat as a synonym to terrariums gets too confusing, them move to delete habitat.
