Will coco husk / coco fiber be a good substrate for cricket egg laying? 🙂

I think damp sand is better, you will see the tiny hatchling nymphs more easily. Keep them around 85 degrees for good hatch rate and spritz the sand daily so it doesn't dry out.

I have seen them sticking their ovipositor in the substrate quite a lot which is a good sign. I will give it till monday and see how many there is. I also ordered more crickets that should arrive this week and i will give sand a try. Is any reptile sand okay to use?

O.K good, as long as the substrate us damp you should have some success. I used washed play sand but reptile sand may be fine.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
