I might be in some trouble. Millipedes, climb?

    I have six baby Euryurus Leachii. Or had, anyway. I put them in a five gallon. I figured I would dig a few up to show my brother, and I was only able to find one! And that took a few minutes. There's no way they could escape, right? Not even climb the silicone, or anything? Or are they just well hidden in the dirt?

    They can most definitely climb the silicone if they wanted to. not the glass though.

    I remember one day finding a 10 inch AGB in the hall 40 feet from his tank...they can climb for sure, the sillicone that is right.

    Silicone, yes. Plastic/Glass, no. I would completely dump the tank out in a big plastic tub, I had this scare as well when I first got my millipedes, they're just hard to find.
