So the plants wont be happy with it if used often.. Will end up burning the moss...
    Most def, I have since switched to using only distilled water in the tiger tank. I actually took the whole thing apart, un-planted everything, tossed out the old peat and replaced it with new peat that I soaked in distilled water. There should be ZERO trace of tap water in there now

    I definitely have some experience with water snakes :P I'm also VERY familiar with the way their teeth feel in my hands & arms

    Good luck with the plants.
    Good deal, thanks

    Thanks a lot They seem to like it.

    I hope you're right :P

    Aww, I envy some of those herping trophies! Living in the great white north, one can only dream...

    Good luck with the flytraps! They are very forgiving if given the right conditions, but be careful, this hobby is extremely addictive!

    Thanks for the kind words

    Why do the hobbies I pick up always seem to be the addictive ones?
