Looks good but the substrate looks a bit dry.

The top inch or two is dry,the IR light dries it out but I spray it all the time.There is about 6 inches of Coca fiber,the deeper down the wetter it is.So down where the burrow is its fine.Thats where they are most of the time.

forgot to add I do plan on doing the false bottom tank.Its just that I have a 20 gallon tank so thats alot of coca fiber to move around.I know thats no excuse but I'm pretty sure they are fine at the moment but when winter comes around Im sure there might be a problem with keeping the humidity up

A 20-gallon will be really heavy as a false-bottom. Good luck! Smile

The blue is a result of your flash having a touch of UV in its emission spectrum. I got jet-black photos of my emps when I used a different camera.

Yes, it is. I have a wired shelf and my Red tail boa got under the 20G and I lifted it but couldn't put it back down or else I would squish it and man I ahad to hold it for like 10 minutes I was SWEATING.

What Im worred about is the glass bottom.Has anyone with a false bottom glass tank ever had any problems with the glass breaking?I dont ever plan on moveing the tank so it being heavy isnt that big of a deal.I just dont want the glass to break.If anyone has any rock/pebbles size recomendations please let me know.

I have seen other false bottome tanks with all plastic on the bottom in place of the rocks .I have been thinking about going that route just to feel safer about not breaking the glass.I have about 2 weeks to think about it so any ideas would be cool.Ive read here and other places about false bottoms I would just like some personal opinions about the two different settups thanks =o)

btw thanks Mantid about the blue

The water is heavy, too. So look at it this way: if people can fill the WHOLE TANK with water, which weighs about 50 lbs per cubic foot, then you should be safe with a few inches of gravel and water (especially considering that most aquariums have several inches of gravel).

Another alternative for a false bottom are the clay medium balls that herp people use. This stuff: http://www.hydroponics.net/i/260002

It's light-weight and does the exact same thing. I suggest separating it from the substrate with some screen or something though. The scorpions would burrow down and bring most of the false bottom stuff to the top.

I wouldn't worry about the bottom breaking unless you're either dropping the rocks from a great distance or throwing them in... or if you drop the tank.

No worries. I get a little antsy when I have to move a false-bottom around.
