Re: Tank Temperature

Insulate the ultratherm, you can use a blanket to cover your tank until you get stuff to insulate, cover the back, top and sides. I used a different type of carpet padding to insulate mine, I think other use cardboard wrapped with tinfoil. Poly pro insulation board works great too, I think you can ...

If so, where are they located and what temperature and humidity do they usually read? 75-80 temp, 75-80 humidit...

My E was out of shell and found him on saltwater tub not mov

Help! I just i got him 2 months ago and went underground for 2 or 3 weeks then finally saw him out this morning without his shell on saltwater tub. Not sure if he died or molting? I moved him out of the tank but placed him back after reading some stuff about molting. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
