    Abedus herberti Oh mah gawd!

    Are these things forged with pure, concentrated, awesomeness or what? I must have one! Only details I couldn't get is how many gallons per adult?

    I can't help with your question. I do, however, want to state that those gave me nightmares as a kid. Haha. Prolly wouldn't be so freaky to me now. If you get a tank set up you should def takes pics/vids and share...... or invite us over to see it.

    I'll definately take pictures! I always try to make set ups look somewhat natural. Ofcourse, I don't have the money to make it "Blamo! Expensive aquatic plants everywhere!" Plus I never know exactly what plants are in their habitats so I usually just toss in whatever I can get my hands on that are compatible

    Hmm... The ones that look like aquatic stick insects, right? Ranatra sp(I think they're called)? They look more like an anorexic vinegaroon, in my eyes, lol. But I'll try that. I'd also have to guess width before height.

    Oh! And I also could only find about their diet they are not picky eaters... But what SHOULD I feed them?
