I've been wait for some two lined salamanders to come in stock for a really long time but while I've been waiting I thought I might well get some different culture of live food started I all ready have cultures of dwarf white ispods, spring tails, and I have some Costa Rican dwarf ispods on the way. anyone have any suggestions on what else I should culture?

I would think that your current variation is sufficient - maybe whiteworms/grindal worms/microworms for variety?

    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.
