I found what looks like cobweb like mold in Johnnys enclosure today. Surrounding moss on the cool side. My substrate is 1.1.1 org topsoil, play sand and peat moss. How do I eradicate that?
Spagnum naturally has and helps with killing harmful bacteria and ectI don't have any topsoil in my enclosures for that reason. Not sure if that's causing the prob - it could be that your humidifier is working overtime? I'm completely changing my whole thought about substrate..... does he have a nice sized hide?
One other thing - sphagnum moss can contain bacteria/dust if left exposed for too long. It's usually clean when you purchase it, but can develop micro-organisms if it's old, or sitting around awhile. Could it be a web from spider mites?
I've heard that the perfect amount is 1/3 of the cage being ventilated but thats just what i heard.Maybe a little more ventilation where the mold is forming if possible...... Be careful though as its a fine balance and more ventilation means more heat and humidity escaping effecting your whole set up
