Just give it a day or two. By then the surface will be fine and the rest can continue to dry out with the T in the tank. As it finishes drying out, the T can get settled in at the same time.opk thanks, any info on drying peat moss out very quickly? got her a bigger tank and its toooo wet, want it to be perfect before i put her in
You can do that. It will help wick out the moisture below and make it more hospitable for the T now without having to change out the entire tank and stress it out further. I had to do this for my big female because she kept knocking over the water dish and making it way too damp.yes i am speaking english, Liverpool UK english, so if i put dry substrate ontop of the damp substrate it will be ok?
