I recently moved my curly into a new/bigger enclosure so the new substrate is still damp. Yesterday while at the petstore getting stuff for my pinktoe I decided to buy a halfed coconut for a hide in the curly's new enclosure. I just put the coconut in yesterday and today I look in and the area in a perfect circle around the edge of the new coconut shelter is starting to grow white fuzz. No place else except where the coconut shelter comes in contact with the substrate.....and when I took the shelter out its also heavier under the coconut......GRRRRR! I changed out the substrate and soaked the coconut shelter in water then put it in a tupperware container with 1/4 inch of water and nuked it in the microwave for 10 minutes let it cool for a couple minutes, released the pressure and steam and then nuked it again for 10 minutes. I hope this fixes it.
