Do you guys have water dishes available to them? or is fruits and veggies plenty water for them?
Can they be kept the exact same way dubias are? No substrat, egg cartons for hiding, that's it.



I've had this spring peeper for over 4 years..!

I would say that they will culture the same as Dubia

I kept mine just like my dubia and lateralis. Just egg crate. I never used water dishes just water crystals. Worked fine.

do you think they'd do well with only veggies and fruits?
I hate water dishes and crystals..

Id say if you soak lettuce in water for a bit and your feeding some of that each day. That
may work. Id really go with water crystals though. just use small disposable dishes for them. Small 1oz portion cups or i use to save my gaterade bottle caps and gallon milk jug caps.

Those small portion cups though fit right into the egg carton real nice and hold in place. just lay one flat on the bottom so you can set the portion cup right in.

Use veggies and fruits. You can mist the side of the tub or cage once a week or so.

*Edit: people who suggest using water crystals or bowls for some convenient reason forget that most veggies/fruits are over 50% water anyways.

I realize how much water most fruits contain but they also can dry out quickly too. An alternative water source is still a good idea.
