suggestions for 2 ft tank... #1
I have a spare 2ft tank at the moment. My 5 yr old is desperate for his own pet. I don't want anything I have to feed frozen dead things (mice, chicks etc bloodworm etc is acceptable ). Any suggestions guys? Just want some ideads to mull over. The pet shops here are pretty bad so I'd prob have to 'order' whatever it is...

Gerbilarium - give them mix of dampened sand and peat so they can tunnel? (might be a bit small)
Land hermits?

I did not really enjoy our stick insect period, found them a bit creepy, was glad to give them away.

Oh don't know if I fancy stick insects I had considered an ADF tank but they're just so little.

Ah, in that case prob not! I'm thinking we'll just wait until we get to our new house and get a cat, not to be kept in the tank though

But just think you could terrorise your in laws with live locusts ...

You don't fancy hermit crabs like Gill's? Pretty shells?
