    It's been a very long time since I've had to deal with roaches. The other night as I went to feed my dogs, I noticed around a dozen roaches on the wall. A few have come in the house and when I tried to clean where I found the roaches, short of a hundred came out running in every direction...

    type of filtration?

    I've been using a few filters and the current one I'm using stopped working. Does anyone have a suggestion for a good filter? Anyone have experience with canister filters? I have a few sliders so... They're very messy :P

    Red foot has spent last 2 days soaking.

    Perhaps your tort doesn't feel he's hydrated enough. Do you soak him daily? I don't think it's anything to worry about but... Hopefully other more experienced members can help.

    Thank you everyone for wonderful replies. I have thought about it, and taken the costs of food, housing and lighting in mind, and I think I am able to keep a new family member! I think I will start off with a hatchling. Would it be okay to buy a tote from Home Depot and house a redfoot...
