Yesterday I moved the torts in - our friend still has to build us a stand that will go under the tort table, but I was eager to get Timmy and Roz settled into their new digs.
|This is what the tort table looked like when we brought it home from our friend|
This is what it looked like when I was done treating the wood, and installing the glass:
|As you can see, I already put in the substrate, basking rock, water, plants etc|
|Timmy and Roz having dinner - I put them in before planting the plants|
Once the kids and the torts were in bed, I spent several hours finishing everything, planting some tort-safe plants, and adding more substrate. For substrate I used 4-5 inches of moist coconut coir mixed 1:1 by dry weight with play sand. The hide box has 7-8 inches of it. This was a total of 7 bricks of coir... thank goodness I had a 'buy-one-get-one-free' coupon!

Also, organic soil with a variety of bird-seed and other seeds to sprout

I moved Boo into his new tort table, too, yesterday! He will get his own post.
