:This is may be a bit off topic but you mentioned you wanted vines galore.
:I found a way to make your own vines, I find the comercial vines too expensive..
:1. start off with some steel wire. bend it in half and twin the two parts.
:2. grind up some dark cork
:3. mix the cork wit 30% sand of appropriate color.
:4. in a bowl mix vinegar-based silicone with the cork/sand mix until you get a sticky dough.
:5. make a saucage out of the dough and hide the wire in it.
:6. before silicone sets sprinkle some of the cork/sand mix on the vine.
:7. let dry for 5-6 days.
:Worked fine for me and looks good. ^_^
:You can also make shelves and other structures out of the dough.
::i got a crestie my first i might add hes about 2 inches stv lenghth he is a bright fire with nice red colors he is soo cool although he jumps on my face a lot. i just got him today hes in a 20 gallon tall (thats just for now i will upgrade) with plants branches and vines gallore i havnt tried feeding him yet but will tommorow. hes so cool im in love how old would you say a 2 inch svl crestie is, just wondering cause it has no hemipeneal bulges and if its a femal i can get a male for cheaper to breed them. also if i breed a fire to a normal can i get some fires back?
