Home for Sliders

A friend of mine is looking for a good home for two female red-eared sliders. They are kept indoors in a 6ft aquarium but ideally should be in a heated pond. Enquiries from experienced keepers only please.

I had a whole colony of ants move into my car, after i parked a little too close to a hedge for the weekend! I thought they'd starve but somehow they got by on scraps and bug bits for more than a month... A commercial ant trap eventually took care of the stowaways and it may also work for crickets! ...

Thanks for the pics! It's always good too see examples of other peoples' setups. What are you going to use in terms of lighting?

Thanks for all the advice. I've got my male in a well-ventilated ExoTerra tank, with woodlice which take care of the poops. But i like the idea of something more portable for a bit of sunlight! She left me with a few eggs so i'll start hunting around for some bramble!

I think you're right about them knowing something I didn't... They're remarkable creatures and really easy to maintain. I make sure there's a bowl of water in the tank and that the humidity is high enough. In the terrariums that I don't add any vegetable food to (tarantulas etc.) I add a few pieces ...

I had them in a tank with bark & walnut chip substrate, and fed them eucalyptus leaves. The tree is in a park in the neighborhood. I've been using the same tree for around 6 months with no problems. Don't know where to get bramble leaves... are oak better? What type of oak? The male is still goi...

McLays Stick Insect

My female McLay has suddenly taken ill... she's been laying eggs but still quite small in comparison with some females I've seen. I put some fresh leaves in their tank after rinsing them in the shower under cold tap water - could this be it? Should I have used filtered water to rinse them? They were...

Woodlice Janitors

I have read articles on the web where people advised the use of woodlice as cleaner insects. Supposedly they eat only decaying organic material. I've added them to my tarantula tanks, McLay tank and hissing roach colony and they seem to do a really good job. I have noticed them interested in egg cas...
