Should I cover Up Coral

Post by jonathon1989 » Fri Jan 10, 2020 6:32 pm

So Coral and Clawdia have both been burrowed all day. Coral has a opening in the subrate on top of her and I was wondering if I should cover her up or leave her be? Coral is kind of slow when it comes to doing things. Theres a lot of things she doesnt know how to do unlike her sister. Image

Leave it alone. They leave holes all over the place.

They will take their time digging around, and she may just be exploring to where she wants to be able to comeback up. She knows what she's doing. 😊

They like to make tunnels just to hide and play in too, she will backfill if she is going to molt.

Coral has backfilled and moved elsewhere. Clawdia is now where Coral is.
