Catching Crickets in a Dragon Tank

Postby ComicBookMama » Sun Aug 25, 2019 12:47 pm

I guess I got a bit overenthusiastic and gave Figment too many crickets... now I've got about half a dozen loose in the tank, with Figment just sitting and watching them from his basking branch. Anyone got a good way of catching the crickets so I don't leave them in the tank overnight? Other than by hand? Come on, there's got to be a cricket whisperer out there somewhere... :wink:

Sorry you're probably out of luck on that one haha!
If it becomes a constant for you, you could look into feeding in a separate container or bin. That way you dont have to worry about it :)

I'm glad to hear that figment is eating though!

Take all the decor out of tank - shake ones that have tunnels on them --- catch them one by one

I just put in an order of Phoenix Worms, but will likely grab some dubias, too. Good eating, dubias, from a reptile point of view!
