    My friend is having home issues and cannot properly care for his hermies at the corrent time, so i'm gonna be a foster mommy! i'll be getting a medium-sized hermie named Katrinka, (she's in a painted shell, poor thing, i'll have to fix that) and another small one whos name is Rodney, i think. The little one might be dead, but i'm going to judge of he's dead or molting. My friend says he doesn't smell anything, but we'll have to see. Even better, i get more supplies to take care of them! I'm getting a 1g tank (not much, but my current crabitat is too small for five, so i can split them up or use the 1g as an ISO) and a heat lamp (i know it dries tanks out, but i'd only use it when i'm home and can monitor it.) This is great! I wish i could keep them, but i respect the fact he would want them back, and i'd rather have them for a little while than not at all and have them die. But i won't give them back until they have a proper set up! Hopefully i'll get them tomorrow :D!
    (yeah, not really a question, sorry, i'm just happy!)
    Any suggestions on anything for this situation?

    YOu should get a bigger tank than a 1 gallon. Not to sound rude but even 5 gallons is inadiquite for 1 hermie none the less two of them. So you shouold try to get a 10 gallon tank at the most. And what size tank do you have for your main tank right now
    ?

    (i wasn't going to put two in the one gallon =[) I have only about a 3g, but i'm getting a new one ASAP, hopefully 20-30g. It's better then what he has, at least: a tiny mesh cage in a cold room... *shivers*

    I know it's too small, and i'm going hunting for a new tank as soon as i can, i promise! i already started looking the past few days!
