What are some ways that I can preserve my Ts molts? I've been wanting to do this, but I missed out last time with my B. albos because their molts crumbled. So how can I save these without any crumbling or damage?

xhexdx has a really cool method using resin and casting dead Ts in it. Im sure it would work with molts too though.

Yeah I saw he had that display case in his pictures. Maybe he'll chime in on how he does it.

If you scroll to the bottom of this thread, you will see that this topic has been covered over and over again.

You don't need to do anything to preserve them. They do just fine on their own.

He has a thread or two on how he casts dead Ts in resin. Pretty cool stuff.

I keep my molts as they are. I straighten them out and once they dry out they go in the molt drawer.
