I have a few questions (if anyone can help me) about the Tetramoriums I will be putting in my setup in the next couple of days. I have researched as much as I can and am fairly confident but if anyone here has real experience with it I'd love to hear about it.
1] The substrate in my outworld is reptile sand, quartz sand I'm fairly sure. Some say boil the sand first, some say it doesn't matter. I myself did not and wonder if this will possibly pose a problem?
2] Also will they have a hard time walking/dragging prey through the dry sand? For early stages I have a little tupperware cup with doors cut in it for feeding, but eventually I'd like to get rid of it all together when they are strong enough as a colony.
3] Also on the topic of dry sand, if I wet the substrate do you think they will dig/nest in it? It isn't very deep at all, the substrate. (there is pics in my journal) But I really don't want to encourage nesting in the outworld. Also does anyone with experience with reptile sand know if it stays packed after it dries or if it returns to normal state?
4] Should I water the outworld at all with a hybrid nest? The hybrid nest has proper moisture gradient and bla bla but being as its a pretty large outworld should I wet it? Or have satellite tubes with water/cotton instead?
Hopefully ya'll understand what I mean and look forward to hearing any advice.
