Default Tried to make a Imitator Suitable viv

Hi Still new to PDFs and really enjoying my Bakhuis tincs, but seeing as how I had a spare tank in the shed I put this together, used the cat litter clay to coat the sides and pressed moss into it, I built it with Imitators in mind, opinions/comments please.
Also, is it okay to put 3 or 4 imitators in the same tank? its 2foot tall x 1.5 foot wide and deep.
Thanks,
Al

It should be fine to put a small group in there. I would let the tank sit for a couple weeks just to see if the plants hold up. I like how you stuck the moss into the clay, it looks very nice.

Hey mate.

What particular kitty litter brand did you use?

I am hoping to jump on the clay band wagon soon enough.

Really liking it mate, what kind of Imis you looking to get?

SaniCat Classic, the cheapest one in the petshop LOL.
I have my eye on a trio of Jeberos but they're in the U.K, so have to work out a way to get them to Ireland.

If you are considering Jeberos I'd add a nice thick layer of leaf litter and seed it well with sprintails and other isopods. My Jeberos spend loads of time hunting deep in the leaf litter - you'll love them - really bold and always on show! Def the boldest of my thumbs.

Regards
Marcus

Hi Alwyn,
just to help you make up your mind!!!



Jeberos are definately worth the effort of a ferry trip over here. They are such performers and always on the go, bold enough to just stare at you when you open the viv door too!

Regards
Marcus
