Ok. The twins and I set up Sprocket's new tank.
:)
I think she likes it.
So took a few pictures of her exploring it.

So here is her new tank..

that looks great, i like how you have jazzed up the "jaccuzi" with some plants :D

i can't wait for one of my slings to mature and get large enough for me to keep them in a display tank :)

what's that layer of pinkish substrate beneath your peat btw?

I'm looking forward to my smithi growing into an adult, mine is only at 2.5" now and lives in a large deli cup. Her abdomen is black and shiny though so she should be molting soon.

Nice T's, and great pics, thanks for posting them!

I take very little credit for decorating.
:)
Thats the twins jobs.
I just make sure it's all secure.
So your gonna have to ask them Grael. :)

ahkiu, those are fishtank pebbles.
It's not a layer that extends all the way through that layer of substrate. It's just a little thin pocket close to the glass to show through.
They glow under the blacklight I have as a nightlight in this room when it's dark. :)

It does. :)
There is a scattering of varios shades of flourecent snad mixed in the edge of the peat too.
Not enough to harm Sprocket.
But just enough right there close to the glas that the layer strates glow various shades.
Kinda ghostly and not real bright.
But it breaks up that section of dead zone that the dirt makes when there is so much of it.
I'm planning on getting her a nice piece of log and maybe make her another hide or a semi burrow.
I'm looking into what I have to work with. :)

No stickers. :)
That's a little line of flourecent stones close to the glass under the substrat.
The twins will be adding stickers as soon as they get some more. :)
