I just recently purchased a couple of VFT (So Im a newbie). I live in the east (oakland) bay area of California. For their dormacy period I want to place the VFT in a open 20gallon aquarium in a spot in my backyard were they get about 5 hours of sun (when available) a day. I was going to fill the aquarium with about a 1/4"-1/2" of RO/DI water, and try to maintain that for next 3 months. (from NOV - FEB) Will this suffice?
Does anyone live in may area that uses this method for their VFT? I would like to hear how you go about it, and some of your opinions.
