I cut them because they are deeper than they are wide..That's nice! I have seen this mentioned before but not any pics.
Couldn't you just push it down into the sub more rather than cut it?
Their tarsal claws should have no problem gripping the plastic even if the foot pad looses the gripping ability. And they floatI cut them because they are deeper than they are wide..
Athough highly unlikely I'm afraid the sling would go down to the bottom and not have the grip to get back out.. Alot of Ts when in premolt lose some of there ability to adhere to smooth or wet surfaces and I feel at certain points in there molt cycle deep water dishes can pose a slight danger to them..
for a sling/juvenile that size it wont matter, but ditch the metal and use plastic. The metal will rust quickly
Yup that works too.. However I'm not a chemist so I was fresh outHi guys I buy the pipettes you can buy for watering slings, they only cost pennies, cut the rounded end off & you have a little water bowl.
This is a method I have been using for a while now they are tattoo ink cups small or #12 you can get 200 for about $3.00.. They can be used whole or cut in half wich is what I have done for these little Hapalopus sp. large slings.. Heres some pics for reference and what not..
