I want to add new substrate to the tank. The sand that I bought for the start up is not holding humidity like I want it to. Problem is that my two new rescues went from the month long stay in the ISO tank to the community tank and immediately buried themselves. Stupid question but can I start putting in new substrate? I have no clue when they'll come up or if they are even still alive. I'm constantly spraying the tank down in order to keep the surface sand moist and the humidity up I'd really like to get everything squared away before it starts getting cold and I have to slap another heat pad on.
Update: One of the rescues has finished molting! I'm not sure which one this is they look so similar. But it has all it's little points on it's feet. I'm hoping this means the other one will resurface soon. I'm really anxious to get some new sand in the tank. I also need to move the temperature and humidity gauge. I don't think it being five inches away from the heating pad makes for good temperature readings.
