    I have found that they do not care much for the fake plants but I still put them in there for cover and . They just mainly use the corkbark to hide behind and inside.

    Nice set-ups. Thanks for the visual. I got the cork bark and once I get the Sterelite tub all set up I'll have to post some pics up, too. But as far as the tub goes:

    Should I screen in one of the panels or the top for ventilation? What type of screen is more rust resistant?

    Thanks again for all the help, guys!

    Question

    My leachie should be arriving tomorrow around lunchtime. It was ordered as a baby, but im not entirely sure what the selection was, as I wasn't the one who ordered it...the pet store did.

    I'm worried that his little soon-to-be habitat may be too large for him...

    its a 12x12x18....

    thoughts?

    I do not use any screen at all on tubs, I just drill holes with a drill. The reason I do this is I can control the amount of ventilation and humidity levels. I start with not as many holes and if it is holding too much humidity I drill more holes, works like a charm.

    What is the size of the leachie? If it is a hatching it is going to be way too big, you will want them in a small plastic shoebox tub.

    We requested a juvenile. But we aren't sure how 'juvenile' its going to be. Also we had run into a problem with not being able to find one.....eventually a breeder contacted another and found one. With that said, we may end up getting any age but were informed that it was a Nuu Ami cross and that's about it. Due to the dilemma of finding one, it wont be here until friday now.
