This looks like a great set up yeah, certainly looks good.



Do you have a heat matt? is it on the bottom? cos if so moving it onto the side of the tank is an absolute must.

The only thing i would say is that there might be a bit too much ventilation in that mesh top of yours. You can always cover it up to reduce the amount of airflow.

Oh, I forgot to mention ... Your scorp might not like the hide like that since it lets so much light in. If it's rarely in the log hide, that's why. Try putting it flat down on the substrate. I know that it's probably more for your viewing pleasure than anything else, but you want your scorp to be happy, too, right? Smile

Oh, for the love of Pete, ventilation is a GOOD thing! You wont' have problems with the humidity if you remember to pour water on the substrate periodically -- even if you forget to, emps are hardy creatures that can survive brief dry spells.

I honestly think more ventilation is safer.
