Yesterday, I finally went out and bought an exo terra terrarium. I ended up getting the 60 x 45 x 45 (60 being the height). I got it for £60 at a local pet shop. Any way, i have it temporarily set up befot I do it properly. heres the pic:180(click to enlarge) Theres a real mix in there at the moment.

cool, wat species do u have in there? I can see a mass of indians and a tray of substrate so I'm guessing you have ec's in there too???

Looks good Lamb. Im debating whether 2 buy the exact same Exo Terra this week! Got some birthday money 2 spend, plus a little of my own. My local pet shop is doing that size 4 £56. I ll go in there + flash the cash + c if he ll do it 4 £50. Always worth a try. Cash works sometimes. I already hav the 30 x 30 x 45 size + a 38 gallon Flexarium.

theres a phyllium sp nymph in tha jar.
Nice have you got more eggs hatching or have you just got one nymph?:)

only the one female at the moment, but I believe they are parthenogenic.
Cool good luck with her:)

Good setup and a nice sized tank for the first time buyer, I see your EC's has taken to hiding in the small gap between the lid and the poly background (top right of the tank). I have a picture of 7 of them hiding in exactly the same spot. I ended up putting an empty kitchen roll tube in mine (have the string knotted and held in place by the lid).
You will get a better picture if you leave the doors open and quickly take the picture. You won't get the flash back from the glass.

I copied off your idea taz, I attached a toilet role tube to the side of my enclosure

I've upgraded. I got a small box with an opening lid on it. Cut 2 holes either side so that they can get in. Now I don't have to poke sticks in the tube to get them out. I just open the box and there they are.

I don't get it!!! they have a whole cage to roam free in and they huddle up together in their box. in my enclosure I have a leaf litter pile, do u think they'll go in it?
They'll probably like that:)They'll have it flattened in no time:D

Nice EC's Lamb. Are your smaller species ok in there with those big Eurycanthas? I think I saw a male in there and I was just wondering if he didn't get lairy with the smaller species and hurt them. Or perhaps Eurycantha calcarata males only attack other Eurycantha calcarata males?

All the species in my list live together in a large exo (except my Peruphasma Schultei nymphs which are still in my nymph tank) . I have had a few drop legs but don't know if this was down to the EC's or if it was just a natural reaction to something else.
