The only problem I've had with coconut is it moulds, I also dislike the smell
No, you are fine. I have used it in the past. The main reason I use peat now is because of the cost. It is very cheap and when you have lots of critters, the cost savings are beneficial.Elmolax said:I use bed-a-beast/// 100%
Should I change?
For G. rosea I just usually put a few inches or so of peat moss right out of the bag in the enclosure. No need to wet it as it's already usually a bit damp anyway. It is a bit dusty when it completely dries out though.Spectre45 said:I plan on getting my first T this week, a G.rosea, and I have a quick substrate question. I plan on using peat moss, but with a g.rosea, do I need to wet it before putting it in the kritter keeper?
Edit: From what I've read, they prefer a dry substrate, but I also know I read somewhere to mix the peat moss with water until you can squeeze a handfull and it'll hold it's shape, but won't let out any water. Should I do this, place it in the tank, and allow it to dry before introducing the T, or is it not necessary at all?
