    I have added sand by the time "Houdini" climbed over. That first shot was the first day; I had only what was in the old tank. I think 6-8 inches is good? More in one "mountain" in back.

    Wow. New barrier, no problem!



    And he brought a friend!


    This guy knocked the hygrometer off it's double-stick tape and was trying to figure a way down when I found the two trouble-makers red-clawed.



    We went to OSH and I found a great piece of plexi that's much easier to cut. If a 1' X 2' piece won't do it, not much else will!

    ok.. this time I laughed out loud!! Nice pic, all snuggled up against the plant. What do you think it is that's drawing them to that side? The moisture & humidity maybe?

    The sand is just as moist, and the humidity, if anything, is higher on THEIR side. I think it's the smell of the media.

    I am going to get another reflector lamp and put it on their side, and install the heat emitter to keep the temp. up at night. Then I have this short weedy grass that loves it boggy that I want to try in there. I will have to cut some of that corrugated clear plastic to fit over the grass, like an airplane hangar, to keep the little buggers out of it until it becomes established. By then there should be more grass than all four of them can eat in one sitting. Digging it up is another matter.

    probably would be better also if you sloped the plexi glass against them, facing towards their tank---if they're going to try to cross it, they'd have to fight gravity to get over!

    I don't believe it! The little accomplice did it, he managed to climb a sheer cliff, and was found hanging on the edge, like a little birdie on a wire.





    WTF?!?
