Thank You! Ill definitely keep that in mind until I move them to a larger enclosure.ANY water on the sides of the tank will kill flat millipedes. They are super susceptible to this because they cannot lift their heads out of the water like round millipedes are able to, babies especially and smaller species. My polydesmus angustus reproduced and the offspring died 3 times before I figured out it was the sides, and seeing what species you have, it’s probably similar to my offspring which would explain the “melting” behavior that you’re seeing. If you have any water on the sides just wipe it off and keep spraying to the middle of the enclosure.
Ah dang, that sucks, wonder what happened... Was there a spike in temps or anything?Went and dug through the container, looks like another failure. Ill leave the substrate to sit in case I missed something, but pretty sure they're all dead. Not sure what went wrong. Perhaps next time will be better.
