Re: Best way to catch flies in tat?

in my house, atleast outside of the tank, we use cider vinegar and dawn dish soap. vinegar attracts, dish soap is sticky, so they get stuck and drown in it. not sure if this is safe in their tank with the soap, but i have maybe 2 or 3 gnats in the hermie tank so i dont worry much. the isopod breedin...

lighting temperature (K)? for moss and hermies

currently im using a CFL in the soft white (2700K) temperature range to light the tank during the day and also give the moss a little light to keep alive and repair any damage from eating the hermies might've done. normally i would've used a daylight (6500K) but i couldn't find my stash of them. im ...

glue for projects/repairs?

so i made the other day, with dowels and natural hemp cord, a small sail ship mast i want to use for decoration in the tank and maybe even another way to climb up platforms, but even with the tons of cord i used i feel like it would be best to quickly dab a bit of glue on the knots to keep it from p...
