Advertisement Hello one and all. I got stuck reading a bunch of threads here over in the Myriapod section over the past few days and well, I think I might want to try my hand at keeping a centipede. Since getting back into inverts, I said to myself never a centipede. They're too crazy for me. Well, it appears I'm maybe ready for a change. With that being said, I want to verify some information before I even get one, just so I know what to do, etc. The species I'm looking into getting would be a S. polymorpha. The enclosure I would be looking at would either be a 20 or 54 qt plastic tub with a gasket making sure to inspect how the lid fits to make sure there aren't any gaps or anything of the sort. I'd add airholes in the lid/top portions of the tub. The substrate I think I would use would be a sand/coco coir mix. I would also add a slab of cork bark and some leaf litter. Plus, a water dish. I'd also have a moisture gradient going. So, the questions I have are as follows: Should I even bother with the 20 qt and go straight for the 54 qt even if it isn't an adult? Are the downsides lack of seeing where it's at/potentially it not coming across food? Would 3 or so inches of sub be enough or should I aim for more? Is there anything else I should add to my sub mix? Do they benefit from having multiple hides? Are there any leaves I should really try to avoid? (For instance, I'm pretty sure using Eucalyptus leaves are no bueno) Any other tips or advice would be appreciated! If my plans are good, then swell but if not I definitely need to know. I just want to know what I'm doing before making any sort of plunge. Many thanks in advance. P.S. Sorry if most of this was covered in another thread, for if it was, I totally missed it.
