true, just make sure the substrait isnt soaked/water loged. If your gonna go that route then why not set up a false bottom and get it done right?If you are needing to increase the humidity pouring water directly on the substrate will work much better. Misting will evaporate very quickly
yea just put the substrait in a bucket or something while your adding the false bottom, you will save your self alot of time used by misting and your scorps will be much happier. Dont worry about stressing your scorp by moving it, its no big deal for a enclosure changeYou can easily put in a bag to keep it while you do your set up. A false bottom works mirracles I have never sprayed or misted my tank since. It's been almost a year and I have only poured water down my pipe once and it's still as moist as ever.
The only foreseeable problem is this scenario... "your water dries up over a few months, you finally notice it is gone and decide to add more, the glass is now very hot from the UTH and the water cracks the glass"
oh i thought i remembering you having it on the bottom..my badI was told to get a heat pad but i put it on the side of my tank and it doesn't get that hot anyway becuase the pad is for a little tank (5g)
but I plan on getting a heat lamp this weekend
should I unplug my heat pad?
