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. A Vivarium allows you to hold up to twelve creatures and four different species. However, with more beasts to collect and taking breeding into account, I found myself needing more room. With so many beautiful beasts roaming around the Wizarding world, I quickly wanted to expand my Vivarium species limit. But is it possible? The answer is yes and no.

While you cannot upgrade and increase the Vivarium you receive from Deek's quest, you can get multiple Vivaria. Obtaining additional Vivaria will allow you to hold more creatures and continue collecting and breeding them. However, you must first unlock them.

All Vivaria in Hogwarts Legacy and how to unlock them

Like the Forest Vivarium, each Vivaria can hold 12 beasts, allowing you to have a maximum of 48 creatures across all your Vivarium rooms. Remember that there is a limit of four species per Vivarium. You can sell the unwanted beasts in Hogsmeade at the Brood and Peck shop, creating room for the more adorable and magical creatures of Hogwarts Legacy.
