Love the A. seemanni . They are a great species, but it could also use a feeding as it's quite skinny. They also appreciate some moist substrate. Also note that they are excavators and are burrow a lot, so some deep substrate is appreciated for these guys. I hope you enjoy yours, as I love mines and I might get a second soon.
How do I comment with a pic? I've got about 4" of sub in a container that's 7" deep. I found a really nice long piece of cork bark that made a pretty deep hole. He took a large cricket to it almost immediately. He's been really calm and seems happy so far.

Nice job on your first T, I would probably take the rocks out of his dish as I hear that sometimes it actually prevents them drinking, and at that size the only way you're going to drown them is by forcing them underwater for ages
@RezonantVoid Thanks. I'll be replacing the water dish all together. I didn't like it when I got it in a tank kit a while back and still don't. I've seen people use cups that look pretty deep so I wasn't using the rocks for safty purposes, I just thought they'd look nice, then realized I don't care about looks and my T doesn't either so I'm going to stick with cups or caps.
@animaliaadvocate216 I just pour water into the substrate and let it sink in. Which lasts me about a week and a half without having to moisten the substrate. You basically want it where the substrate has moisture, but not too much to where you can squeeze a lot water out of. Because they don't like wet but moist.
