Good news everyone! I've just blown up Newark!
No, not really, but I bet you're reading this in his voice now if you have seen the show.
Anyways, I dried the dirt out by setting it atop my computer in a shallow dish, and waited for a week. The computer is warm (but since I am a computer geek it never overheats) and a week later, it was dry. I moved Missy into a temporary home while it dried out, so now she is in her new much drier home, and she is much happier. No wall climbing, and no lid-clinging. Plus... she molted! That little one is getting less little every time she molts, so in another three to four months there may be yet another molting, and a bigger size increase.
Two of my slings have also molted for the second time now (Epsilon and Delta) and they're getting bigger. Poor little Gamma molted, but grew in the opposite direction I think. It is really tiny compared to its siblings, and it still worries me since it wont eat.
Sweetie, the one I speak of the most, is officially in pre-molt. She should be molting in the next week to year, since she's a species that is pretty much "I will when I want to... even if it takes me a year".
Everyone's habitat is dry dry dry and the gnats are gone for now. When Sweetie does molt I will come back with many pictures. She will be very pretty, like Miss Charlotte (my sibling's spider) which after molting was a brilliant red and black, with great contrast. I'll see if I can snap a pic of it too later on. Sweetie, though, will come out very brown, since she is a G. porteri (They did some classification changes recently, so the roses that were brown are now recognized as being very different). Even in pre-molt she still lets me handle her without issue.
Ms. Fuzzy is still a b*tch.
