How to increase species limit in your Vivarium in Hogwarts Legacy

Collect and bread magical creatures.

After unlocking the Room of Requirement and completing Deek's quest in Hogwarts Legacy, you will gain the Vivarium. This allows you to hold up to twelve creatures and four different species. However, with more beasts to collect and taking breeding into account, you will quickly run out of room. This may leave you wondering if you can upgrade the Vivarium's space in Hogwarts Legacy.

The answer is yes and no—while you cannot upgrade and increase the Vivarium you receive from Deek's quest, you can get more Vivarium. This will allow you to hold more creatures and continue collecting and breeding them. However, you must unlock these additional Vivarium.
