Extra sand is in for a few days now. Everything seems to be normal. Any reliable online fish store has it in stock? I was going to get from DFS but they are out of stock. I'm not going to get the blue dot one. Too expensive. The Yellowhead should be good.
You have scorpion problems? I did also for a while. Once I was laying on the floor watching T.V. and one crawled into my shirt. Got stung 4 or 5 times. Anyway this is how I got rid of them. Diatomaceous earth, spread it around your base boards and leave it down for a few days. It cant harm you, your pet are safe from it also. As a matter of fact people use it on dogs and cats for fleas. Anyway you will start to see dried out scorpion bodies around the house. I was shocked I had called three different exterminators about the problem and they told me their was nothing they could do. Apparently the stuff scratches the exoskeleton and the scorpion bleeds out. I got the bag of Diatomaceous earth at the local nursery (plant store) cost I think $10. Havent had one since.
