technically this should prolly go in the critter forum but i would like it to stick around here so more ppl see it.
as some of you know i keep frogs and am getting into inverts such as tarantulas and scorpions. ive been reading alot on an invert board and these guys absolutly freak out about mold. my dart frog tanks are generally close to 100% saturated, have leaf litter and wood along with live plants. i have ZERO problems with mold after the first month which is normal. invert keepers, using the same type of soils(peat and cocofiber) in just slightly damp conditions seem to have a heck of a time with mold and freak out about it because it can kill the T's
why is it i have no problems with mold in saturated poor air circulation conditions but these ppl routinly have problems in barly damp soil with much better air circulation? i cant figure it out.
