Hey guys (and gals), my Eupalaestrus campestratus Pink Zebra Beauty tank has given birth to baby crickets.

Should I replace my substrate to rid my tank of the crickets, or what remedy would you suggest to prevent or cure this.

I would have to assume (which is why I'm asking those of you in the know, so to say), that this would cause stress to my T with all these babies running around.

Thanks for any info!

If you have a water dish in the tank often times they will drown in there and you wont even have to worry about the problem. If it persists then changing the substrate would be a swell idea.

Hey Baph.
Just let your enclosure remain a bit dry for a few days and they will dissappear. The crix will not survive for long without water. I don't think removing the water dish would be necessary either...like Jacen said, if any crix find their way into the water, they will drown. With that in mind, you may want to give the T fresh water daily for the next few days too.
