Sold out ...for now.

I`m rebuilding all my invert setups into shelving units. There all gettin a little switcharoo in cages , well 4 tanks are anyways. I`m gonna remove her from the tank she`s in , cause of the two other males in there. Luckily she hasn`t had a chance to burrow too deep,not like my males, so i just pretty much have lift a rock and scurry her into a deli cup. I will be placing her in her new ten gallon setup, with a pre-dug scrape to minimize stress.

Will post results.

Mat

I got her at "le salon du chien et plus" Boulvd "laGappe" Gatineau
Tell them Mat sent you and they should give a you deal on 2-3 or more.

well i made the transfer and found there was 10 in total. 1 was even clinging to the head of one of the males. I placed them on her back and she decided to eat two of them one that fell off and one that was too close to her mouth as she was eating the other one. I quickly put two crickets(delegged ) in her way and she grabbed both of them. she eating all this practicly at once.But has slowed down with the crickets in her gaping jaws. Hope that `s all for the canabalism....I sould have just placed he in her own tank at first. Ah well , live and learn.
