sometimes i get an odor but mainly right after he goes poo. just keeping it clean should keep the smell away. also not too long ago i took apart the hole cage, swept away all debris and sprayed it all with disinfectant spray, let it sit and wiped it down. then i put my beardie back into a very clean cage
its not too labor intensive to clean the whole thing out and spray it as long as its clean to start with.
I'm trying the new hanging Armor Hammor Baking Soda in the viv. We work all day...and it seems that they go every other day ...and those are big days...of course it is when we are not here. I clean them out as soon as I get home...but I'm trying to eliminate any odor coming from the viv.
I'll let you know how it works out... just got them this weekend.
I will be putting my new bearded in my bedroom and my room-mate is absolutely horrified that it is going to start smelling. I invested in starting a dubia colony but haven't dealt with the tank issue yet. After doing a short search it seems activated carbon can work wonders at odor elimination. I'm going to attempt to hang a small packet of activated carbon on the enclosure and see how that works. I'm getting a baby so I doubt he/she will smell much anyway but I will let you guys know if their is a noticeable difference. I have an aquarium so i have the stuff laying around
This is Atlas, he's my 3 year male leatherback. i don't know whether to be worried as he has no femoral pores what so ever, not even small ones! i always thought they would come with age but he is getting a bit older now and i'm starting to worry. here are some photos of his lack of pores. if someone could let me know if this is healthy that would be greatly appreciated!!
