    It was a great idea to use those as water bowls for slings.

    That's all i use is pop bottle caps for slings until they become juvies, then they get gatorade caps or vitamin water sized caps then. the 2 sub adult and the adult T i have are using Exo Terra rock water dishes.

    What i've recently started doing for my larger Ts is using the small 2oz condiment cups.

    I put aquarium gravel in them to keep the prey from drowning -

    Really like the look of the black gravel with the hint of colors in it in those cups, plus when the albo's or G. pulchras flip it over and scatter the gravel it adds more decoration to the enclosure ;)

    Nice! Maybe burying it a bit might help stop it from getting fliped. Im gointg to be using the ink caps for slings 1/3-3/4 and 1-2 get water bottle caps. Im not sure what ill use as they get bigger but I'll figure something out when the time comes.

    nope, they dig it up lol. my son's G. pulchra pulls his dish inside the hide and sits on it. He doesn't like it having water in it at all ;)

    Critters can do some funny things. LoL

    Currently, I am using medicine bottle lids for young'uns. Large and small depending on size of T &/or enclosure. Just pop the center piece out, clean very well, and they work great.
    Once, when I ran out of these (use for other critters too), I asked the pharmacy if they could give me some. Surprisingly enough, they did.
