Just changed my Tiger Sal’s tank. Here it is! I’m open for criticism and compliments! The left 1/2 is moist and clumps when squeezed, the right 1/2 is slightly dryer and doesn’t clump but is still saturated. Size is 24x18x12 with 4 inches of topsoil mixed with coco-fiber.

Looks nice.
I would add a layer of leaf litter, and perhaps some smooth bark for hiding under.
If it were mine.

Yeah, when I set it up I had the same thought. Used to have a flat cork bark but it was ruined by mold. So I had to use what was in my arsenel at the time. Next time I hit the pet shop I’m definitely picking some up!

Looks like a great setup! How do you feed your tiger? So many places to hide. D0 you leave food at a specific area or let it roam around?

I used to Hand feed nightcrawlers, but recently I’ve switched to setting the worm on a food dish and letting him hunt it on his own. This way I can monitor what he eats and still have him hunt. I’m recently decided to start growing Isopods as another feeder. Thx to @Herpin Man!

Very nice! All I would say is replace the plastic plant with some live plants.

Planning on going BioActive in the future with live plants springtails etc. The process is expensive so I’ve not gotten to it yet!
