Hi all, old time member but not around very often lately so not sure if many of you will remeber me.
I have recently acquired a pair of basilisk, how cool are they *[img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] . *They are very active and sure like to eat and swim. *Couple of questions for anyone who has raised these guys before. *Is tap water or distilled water better to use in the pool? *I'm pretty sure they drink from it also. *I do mist the tank daily, but they like the pool. *
I'm trying to use plants in the pool for filtration, although having trouble finding plants that they don't destroy when jumping all around. *Anyone with any suggestions of sturdy water plants?
I have not been in the habit of changing the water in the pool, evaporation is pretty quick so it gets topped off at least once a week if not more frequent. *Although this is the first that the pool is being used, so I'm not certain what build up of waste will begin in the pool and what it will do to the drinking factor. *I'm hoping the plant filter will keep it in ok shape. *
Well any thoughts would be appreciated.
