Good morning all.


I am in need of new Hydration material for my omni nest. The one That I have in there seems to have shrunk.

Also I am having a bit of an issue keeping my S. Invicta in there nest. They have moved the mesh inside the hydration chamber and made a getaway. Does anyone have a suggestion to control this ?

Lol thanks for the stellar advice. I keep it hydrated every other day. It is a sponge but its a special sponge that doesnt mold. I need a new one, or two.

But thanks for the comment.

You can use either a sponge or perlite.
