In your other thread you said she wasn't eating, right?
If she isn't eating and still getting bigger she may be gravid.
Which means you need to hurry up with adding another layer of at least 4" of moist substrate.[/QUOTE
it's a she?! And whats gravid and she is eating do i need to soak the substrate and squeeze it out
Much, much better! Now just pack it down and overfill the water dish so the dry parts can wick up the moisture too.
If you have an appropriately sized dish and a hide or two you shouldn't have to worry about it calling on her. She doesn't need a shelf.She dosent have a hide anymore, I had to take it out, but she can dig under the water dish shelf, i have a shelf under it so if she dug under the dish it wouldnt fall on her. im goining to go get a bigger tank tomrrow because she looks really cramped,
5.5 is perfect. You just need to pack down the substrate a bit more and it won't look so cramped. They really don't need a lot of space.5.5 gallon tank and she is about 4-5inchs She barely fits in her water dish
