Re: AntsCanada Forums

gotta say im not a fan of the colors. who chose the puke green background? Also why is there a color gradient in the top part? Also it dosent stretch for widescreens. And if you need to explain an icon to people.. you need a better icon.

Re: Omni nest vs. Hybrid nest

i use an omni nest for my Campo Nove species

I water 1 side just until the sponge is fully moist and the other side i water the sponge until i can push down and water will come out. that way they have a full moisture gradient. I also water the nest roughly every 3-5 days
