I just got back to owning cute beautiful two 7-9 months old ball pythons . Their home is a kit from The Biodude for ball python, It is a great kit. I don’t use bugs. Yet I created springtails (in moss maybe), my snakes are in own exo terra large low Terrariums and having Normal issues… with:
Temps Humidity Gnats not yet on mold
1). Working on a small gnat issue. Any advise? FYI I have a cat so that hanging tape is out and chemicals too! Drying out is messing with humidity (working on as well). I have Plexi on screen tops.
2). Also any suggestions lol
(exo terra lid is the screen divided into fours) not sure why exo did that? It is not a solid screen tops, I wish exo terra made custom plexi tops??? !!!
3). Last thing lol (UTH) with thermostat the Dirt substrate, Thermostats Is at 92 I’m barely getting hot burrow hide (heat gun) 78- 80. I heard (90 -100) beside two store brought hides (cold and hot end!) I also made three hide dirt burrow one in cold side, middle and hot end (1 1/2 Inch thick of substrate dirt in hot end burrow (always making sure not close to the glass bottom!) Belly burns (NERD suggested) thermostat 98 -105 they did a video on the zoo med 600 thermostat FYI! Just wondering what you all are setting thermostat TEMP with …bio active setup with uth.
I hope this makes sense, early morning texting. It can be just a dangerous as drunk texting lol
What issues are you all having and how are you dealing with the good and the bad! How can I prevent issues, tricks of the trade!
Researching, I am finding there is NOT a lot of info on maintaining, dealing with issues or vague the bio active terrariums. A lot of videos of unboxing the bio kits and building them, but not maintaining?
Thank you all and please all stay safe!
