    I clean the glass when they molt. A freshly molted t is no real concern, so i go in with a washcloth when the ts are still "soft". With NWs, i will just wipe it clean when things start to look nasty.

    Interesting, I wait till they harden up. I'm always concerned they may get too startled when soft and end up with a mangled/bent leg if disturbed. I've had some take off when disturbed, a bit awkwardly on their part.

    How soon after molt are you going in?

    My Avics usually go either in the water dish (easiest to clean) or on the glass walls (comes off with a plastic putty scraper and damp paper towel).

    For the terrestrials, I don't even see it unless it's in the water dish. I clean the water dish and remove any boluses I find, but their poop only gets cleaned when they are rehoused onto fresh substrate.

    Right away...while the t is still white if i can.

    But i also pull molts immidiately as well. My theory is that if its stuck somewhere, i want to know about it while theres still time to do something about it.

    I just use a wet Q-tip to clean it then a dry one to soak up any excess poopy water :)
