Just wondering, what setup did you start your queen in?

This has happened to me when I moved my P. californicus.

 

One time, I made a hydrostone cast. The cast was cured for 3 weeks before I let them in. Once they started moving in I saw deaths, so I took them out and they are now back in the test tube/plastic bin setup again. 

 

I wasn't sure what killed them. The hydrostone was fully cured and I did not paint it.
