Hi Folks,
Anyone uses these external breeding boxes to raise larval?
i am looking at these external breeding boxes due to very limited space in my wine fridge.
i do have a little spare space on each shelves in the fridge as the exo-terra faunarium Large size width is only 30cm and the wine fridge is deeper it allows me to fit in these external breeding boxes behind or infront. at the same time these external breeding boxes are air driven so aeration for the larval is not an issue. however i need to modify the exo-terra faunarium cover lids to fit these external breeding boxes.
These external breeding boxes even largest size are quite small though about 11x5x6 inches
Do you think these external breeding boxes are workable for raising larval?
Thanks and cheers!

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.

    I just looked it up to see if I can find it again. It’s actually a hyGROmeter and temperature. Which measures the dew point. Here is the difference between due point and humidity. https://www.weather.gov/arx/why_dewpoint_vs_humidityYou can calculate Th relative

    Hey y'all, recently my juvenile axolotl's tail has been floating and can swim down but his tail lifts to an angle and I believe that it is stressing him out. He gets in between his plants to balance himself and I am cleaning out the bottom of the tank with my baster. I believe I overfed him and he also may have eaten many air bubbles. He's been like this for nearly 1 1/2 days.
