Re: Swapping Shells Back and Forth

I have a PP with a four shell collection, two red and two green. They range in size from too small to too large. He changes shells at least daily.

Re: Garden?

I've planted barley, sunflower, turnip, peppers, lettuce, millet, and wheat. They will sprout and grow and are good for a few weeks to a month. Eventually they all give up. You want to be sure to use untreated seed.

Look at all the weight he has put on. And that face! I never thought I would say a lizard is cute, but that's exactly what he is. Thanks for the update.

Re: Crabitats with other animals?

You're a better person than I am, because I doggedly went ahead and did it after reading that it was a bad idea. I felt pretty bad when I found that poor frog dead.

Re: Crabitats with other animals?

I have a large tank, 225 gallons, and have done some of this. I wouldn't call my experience successful. The long and short of it is I don't recommend it. Just because you can provide the correct humidity, temp, etc. for a creature doesn't mean that it will be comfortable in those conditions with ano...

Re: Finally!

He took a chicken bone from me last night. He actually started to eat while I was holding it. He was on the upper level, and he dropped it once and stayed still until I picked it up and gave it back to him. :crabbigsmile:

Re: Plants..?!

The plants that I have tried to plant in Ecco earth have all died. I keep them in small pots, and eventually all of them would die if I didn't rotate them out of the tank. Some of the ones that have worked best for me are pothos, peace lily, and spider plant. I also sprout barley and sunflower seeds...
