    stop giving the mold water? :sour:

    ventilation does wonders, I also recommend a cleaning crew.

    you should check out the Bonia mold thread, really good thread

    Add ventilation and springtails. Scoop it out if you want.

    try reducing the temperature a bit. I noticed with some of my enclosures with worse ventilation, that when it was really hot outside (and in my house) they tended to get quite a bit more humid. Don't freeze your T, but it might help some.

    this is very unnecessary. spot cleaning would probably be better and easier

    So should i just scoop it out and then add springs?

    That sounds like a logical way of removing something, or use forceps. Whatever works for you, this isn’t rocket science. ;)

    i'm not saying that spot cleaning wouldn't be easier and better. But as a last resort, temp control couldn't hurt. Probably should have specified that in my original post. lol. Its just something i've noticed with my T's.

    Or just do nothing. The vast majority of my enclosures have mold. A couple have a sprouting mushroom right now. Just pluck out what you can and forget about it.

    Pretty much just wanted to know if it was dangerous

    Same. I love to see what grows! I don't have any mushrooms though ): Just fungi.
