I started a scrape under the slate, as well as, some scrapes under the log at the back of the enclosure. My haddy
spent one day under the log, but has now started working under the slate.

I just hope I didn't make the substrate too hard. I used 1 part excavator clay to 3 parts play sand.
If I do it again, I think I'll use a 1:4 ratio.

I think your ratio should be fine. That's usually how I mix mine. Maybe 1 part clay to 3 1/2 parts sand. I usually throw a bit of loose coco fiber in there and I mix in some pet shop sand, the really fine red or white kind.

The haddy has made a 2nd burrow into the "hillside" on the opposite side of the enclosure. This burrow rises
diagonally along the glass (gotta love masking tape) and emerges in the corner behind the log. This is way cool.
When these photos were taken, the scorp was in a scrape under the log. The first burrow is right over the false
bottom, so perhaps it's too moist on that side of the tank right now for his liking. I'm glad to see him digging
multiple burrows. It will be interesting to watch where he spends his time.

The little hairy has been busy. It started a back entrance to his first burrow:







A couple days later, it now looks like this:








The stone may be in a bad spot. I've already moved it once.


He's also been busy down by my fill pipe. I'm gonna leave the rock where it is. He managed to move the slate,
he can move the rock too if it gets in his way.


And, he buried another cactus.

If I do this again, (H. arizonensis pallidus and H. spadix are calling to me Very Happy) I'm going to use a 10 gal tank with
plenty of hill side. Unfortunately, it'll weigh a ton.

hahaha i could imagine.my 10 gallon false bottom emp tank with a slope that reaches 8'' of substrate weighs at least 60lbs.sand i would think is heavier.im pretty sure you know this being the diy genius you are but if you do get that make sure its an aquarium for fish,its built for the internal pressure.

Google says that rammed sand weighs 1.6 times the equal volume of water, wet packed sand 2.1 times. I think
once the sand dries, the pressure on the glass sides is probably reduced through shrinkage of the substrate. The
time you need to exercise caution is when you're tamping down the wet substrate. And, when you try to move the
tank Very Happy. A tank half full of substrate would weigh around 64lbs (5gal * 8lb/1gal * 1.6 = 64lbs).
