Ginamit ho ba ulit yung substrate after ho na-bake? Baka ho kasi kailangan ng total replacement ng substrate para ho yung spores ng fungus eh totally eliminated.

Kulang siguro yan sa ventilation, dagdagan nyo po sir ang vent holes para mabawasan ang humidity

follow mo lang TS ung suggestions nila:
1. replace the substrate
2. add more holes / ventilation
3. wag masyado basa ung substrate
4. remove mo agad ung left overs ng feeders

yup ginamit ko po ulit ksi kala ko mapapatay ng pag bake ung fungus kaso nag spread lang sa buong substrate d ko din alam pano ung mga decorations at hides baka infested narin ng fungus... color light green ung fungi eh onting lng dati tapos hinayaan kong maging bone dry ung substrate bago ko binake kaso ganun padn nung binasa ko ng onti ung substrate

inde nman sobrang basa nag start sha nung nabasa ko ung parang bone dry na area ng enclosure nya hangang lumaki ung spores at binake ko na para d n mag spread kaso lumala din

d ko rin kaya mag add ng ventilation ksi ung enclosure nya ung aquarium glass na mag sliding sa gilid at mga pagitan ng salamin sa taas ung ventilation ung ganun type na enclosure

replace ko nlng cguro ung substrate try ko,, d naman ako ganun nag babsa ng substrate nagkataon lng na nabone dry ung substrate tapos parang nabasa ko ata ung part na hindi masyado nababasa tapos dun nag start d ko alam pano na introduce ung fungi ksi hindi sha normal mold eh,.. dun nman s pag alis ng left overs d ko magawa hyper nung smithi ko lahat ng gumalaw gusto kainin,.. kahit normal ung feeding schedule nya,. muntik n rin ako madali sa pag alis ng left overs eh,.. kaya d ko p alam kung anu magandang paraan para maalis ung left overs..


sorry sa late reply guys nawalan ng internet ksi nag upgrade ng service provider,.. s ngayon nilipat ko naman ung smithi ko s maliit n enclosure para d naman madali nitong fungi at observation n dn baka may dumikit s kanaya or may effect na pero so far wala naman eh salamat s reply guys

- Change your Substrate.. pero if you can't try mo i heat sa microwave on High mga 2-3 mins (don't forget to cover sealed microwaveable containers are best).. dunno lang if it will work ha..

- Clean the container thoroughly and disinfect.. then air it out for a while hanggang matuyo and medyo mawala yung smell ng disinfectant..

- if you can't add vents then change your enclosure.. pet homes will work.. yung nabibili sa mga petshop..

- clean the surrounding area here you place your T's

- wag masyadong basa ang substrate and avoid direct sunlight.. (don't wet the substrate at all if you can offer a water dish) if you don't have a water dish mist lang sa sides ng enclosure and not the substrate..

- always try to remove leftovers.. pero kung bone dry ang substrate you won't have much of a problem kung makalimutan mo gawin ito.. in my experience..

hope this helps..

as for the decors and hides if possible boil it in water.. and again i dunno if it will work but no harm in trying..
