I will rebuild eventually. Probably over the summer.
Nice! What size is Octavia's home?

first of all, before I forget- kytkattin that's a BEAUTIFUL enclosure for Octavia!!

Second, to all those who hate roaches and crickets- you're all welcome to come to Newfoundland!! :D Neither can survive our climate! (ppl feed crickets to their reps and whtever but if they escape they cannot breed or last long outside, even in summer [my sister had a few escape a couple yrs back]) On the other hand, whoever said they're afraid of mice.. Well the older parts of town are crawling with them! sorry!

All the roaches used for food in captivity need to have like 85-90 degree warmth to breed..so if one escaped in your house, it might live for a while, but wouldn't make babies. But the good thing is dubias can't climb or jump..unlike crickets, yuck. It's nearly impossible to have crickets and not see an escapee! Yuck yuck!

She is in a 10 gallon. I am not super happy with build. It was my first try... She is too tiny for it. And it isn't easy to clean/take out. I need to come up with other designs. No rush though, it is going to be my senior project!

Remember that the tank your fish lives in is his or her's whole world. Ask yourself this question, and answer it honestly: would you choose to live there?
