    Hey, I'm wondering if anyone can help me, I recently purchased an Irian Jaya Blue Tongue Skink which requires a humidity level of around the 60 - 80% range. I've done a lot of research on suitable substrates to use, I settled for Coconut Husk as the main bedding with Sphagnum Moss mixed over...

    I recently had to take out a piece of grape wood that molded over night. I'm currently using a jungle vine while I find a suitable replacement for my crested geckos enclosure. What type of wood won't mold in a humid environment?. I'm looking for something branch like.

    Hi, I've just started breeding locusts and i've noticed that once i put the lids on the tubs after eggs being laid, the top of the substrate seems to develop a white fluffy substance that im thinking is mould? Is this the case? Whats going on there? Will this mould prevent hatching or kill the...

    Hi all, I come here to seek your help! Our tiger salamander is about 10 years old... and he has recently (last month or so) developed what looks like fungus on his lower lip area. It almost looks like a giant pimple but black/grey. I have attached a picture of it.. What do you think it is, and...

    Howdy! I have a pair of Achatina Fulica snails I got recently. I found a large branch and used boiling water on it before I put it in their tank. Obviously their tank is kept moist and humid so specks of white mould have started to form on parts of it. Mostly parts that are close to the soil...

    Hi, I have a 4 foot aquarium with 2 African Helmeted Turtles. The setup I have is an external filter and no lid as is required for terrapins. However during the winter months I'm getting an awful lot of condensation to the extent of my walls and ceilings developing mold. The carpet feels damp...

    Hi, I have already put this post up in the feeder section, however I thought I would ask you guys too. I know spring tails are meant to eat mold but I am trying to start a culture of them and I used some porridge oats as food. The next day I had a look and there was lots of white furry mold. I...

    Hi, I know spring tails are meant to eat mold but I am trying to start a culture of them and I used some porridge oats as food. The next day I had a look and there was lots of white furry mold. I just wondered if the culture will cope with this over time or if it needs to be moved asap. Regards

    Hi all! I'm keeping insects (weta) on substrate for the first time. It is an organic compost/tropical terrain brick/budlia leaves mix. I did this mix on the advice of the insect dealer. He said this would prevent mold, but I've noticed a couple of patches in the deep part of the substrate...

    Hi guys, I have just had squishy out for a hold and noticed a few white patches on her back, side and tail. I'm not sure what they are, i've never seen anything like this on her before. I'm thinking either patches developing ready for shedding or could it be mold? Any ideas? She...

    Okay so today I have someone coming round to treat some mold around my windows with a bleach based spray. Just wanted to know if you think it would be a good idea to move my Ts enclosure to another room or even another house.

    4 weeks ago our Anery X Snow clutch was laid, and has been incubating at a nice steady 82F since. In the last two days, one or two of the eggs have started getting small bright (and I mean almost neon) green patches on them. A lot of it is where eggs are touching each other and some is in...

    I'm using sphagnum moss as the substrate in my leo's moist hides. As I went too have a look at one of them earlier I noticed she's getting ready for shed. I then, as you do, checked the moss was still damp, however, I spotted this at the front of the box...

    I'm planning to use a mixture of bark and coconut husk for my california kingsnake. My question is: Coco husk comes in a brick, so u need to add water to make it useable. If i squeeze the subsrate before using (removing most of the water) will it cause problems? I'm asking this because i've...
