Hello!
I just recently got my desert hairy scorpion. Although I've noticed the sand and peat isn't holding a burrow at all. I read that mixing 30% clay with 70% sand is best and also doing layers at a time (not exactly sure what that means) and letting the layer dry before adding another one. Can my scorpion be in it tank while one layer is drying? I know they don't like humidity. Is there a way for me to speed up the drying process and put down layer after layer to get it done faster? Also how much water should I add to the clay and sand mixture. Thanks for any response, this is my first desert species so I am lost :wacky:
