Hi guys i am new here but have been a T owner for quite sometime...My first T was, and is a A. Avic...which gave me some eggs a week after i got her...but they failed because of the humidity was to low i guess...anyway i also have a G. Rosea which is about 3.5 inches and now i am the proud owner of a fully grown H. Lividum...I couldnt find a sling so i had to settle for this one..anyway...i just moved the rosea into a new smaller tank...and put the H. Lividum into her old tank...which is 10 gallons...bigenough i guess...my rosea has already used my premade burrow and also has added to it...!!!has a tunnel and 2 entrances....kinda cool...but my cobalt doesnt seem like she is taking to her home very well yet...she has webbed up ina capsule in 2 different spots of the cage but has ignored the burrow i made for her...through experience and observation i have made the burrow as hospitable as possible but she just doesnt go near it....i tried to nudge her to go near it since maybe she just hasnt found it yet...but needless to say...the nudge turned into a fight..so i stopped that!!!=D the humidity is a 60% and i can get it upto 70 but it quickly goes back to 60 and hangs there sometimes going to 55% but no lower...temp is unknown but i keep a red heat light on most of the night when i am home...also have an under cage heater but i think the subs. is too think for that...might put it on the side......so anyway i guess my question is..about how long did it take for other cobalts to either make a burrow or use the premade ones...also for the first few inches i am using a good ole TP roll as a sturdy entrance should i get something bigger or stick with that?? I have tried giveing her the most privacy i can by putting a towel over the front of the cage but still she does nothing....any opinions??
