No, this is what you said:Originally posted by lam
I never said I didn't know about them. I did do research and I pretty much knew as much as I know now.
In that case what did the deaths show you that you already knew?It took me some deaths before I reallized my mistakes and changed my ways.
Being that G.rosea are the easiest of all T's to care for I'd have to agree with you. It stands to reason, doesn't it?Taking care of slings are much harder, based on my personal experience, than taking care of a rosea.
What? LOL.Now be honest, do you actually know how to do something right the first time always after just by knowing it?
Well, the more I read your post the more it says to me you didn't research well enough. Now if you read your post more carefully you'll see you stated that it took you some deaths before you realised your mistakes and changed your ways(my original quote of yours). I'll spell it out for you then, if it took you deaths to realise something, doesn't that mean you weren't aware of something(being that it took you deaths to realise)?BTW, read my post again more carefully. I don't think I expressed any warnings of lack of knowledge in the field.
OK. So you are saying you were slack and spiders died. It would then stand to reason that you shouldn't be keeping slings because of your lack of dedication, right? In which case you should have emphasized that it was your own fault your spiders died, becuase you failed to do what you knew. I'm failing to see what you were trying to educate people about lam.I stressed heavily on pattern of care and dedication. By "my mistake" that I put in the other post, I meant not enough focus and dedication.
In which case you need to adjust your timetable if you are going to keep animals that may need care of some sort. Every keeper has to maintain their pets, what did you think, they were going to look after themselves?Cutting up crix and worms takes time and they're not exactly fun to do. It is easy to let it slip your mind if you have a busy schedule. And that was what I was trying to say.
Just out of curiousity, what did that tell you?Doing it the first couple time is easy. But trying to get into a pattern of doing it every other day or so takes focus. For me, it is not a given.
