Just wanted to share my new moss pit that I set up last night, this weekend I'll be changing the substrate and adding larger water bowls :) Image

Well a few people in my other posts were saying it looked dry and I noticed one of my crabs came up super dirty after a day dug down. The substrate has only been in there for about 3 1/2 weeks but the lid I had on there previously was subpar so I guess that was enough. I've got a new lid on there now and it hasn't dropped below 77% in the last 4 days (currently back up to 78ish with the moss pit), I'm sure the new water+pump will help that too!

You don't have to replace it all - just add some moistened EE and play sand and mix it all together!
