Hi,

i seriously need some advice. I had some E. distanti in the past and they all died because they had molting.

I just bought 100 and the first one to molt was having problem getting out of its skin.

I am thinking that maybe i am keeping it too humid? I had assassin that i kept too humid and they had problem molting, so i am thinking that it maybe the same thing.

how do you keep your E. distanti? what am i doing wrong?

I have mine in a 14"x8"x14" plastic shoe box with 2" of coco fiber semimoist. I have a heat mat under heat that keep the temperature at 75 F and the lid has a screen (60% is screen).

thanks,

jason

Are they nymphs or adults? They're dying from the bad molts (the molts are that bad)? You should have one corner or side wet and the other side dry but the issue could be too much or too little heat or something else.
