I won't be doing this until I'm sure if the suspect egg is an egg or not, but at some point I'd like to totally redo their tank, possibly move them to a larger tank and add a lot more things for them to climb up/over/on - they're super active and the male loves to clamber up things and lounge about at the top of branches etc.

So, what's the best approach for this? I'm thinking pick a time when they're both above ground, transfer them somewhere so that they can sit it out, and then carefully remove everything and so on.

Should I sieve the substrate to check for eggs etc?

Do they take well to being relocated like this? They've dug tunnels everywhere so I wasn't sure if the move would stress them out?

Cheers.

I tried not to do mine very often but when I dig I keep the old subs and treat it like it had millies in three just incase if hatches and check now and then for babies.
The millies didn't seem to kind the move infact they used to seem extra just exploring :)

Cool, thanks Shaz. Def not something I plan on doing often - I was just watching them over the last few weeks and thinking the tank could be so much better!

Good idea keeping the substrate, much easier than my idea of sieving through it! :oops:

You could just throw the old substrate in a trash bag and check it every month or so until you're sure you didn't miss anybody big or small.

Cool, thanks Orin - I really want to revamp the enclosure so I think I'm going to have a go.

I get the impression the male especially will enjoy having a lot of work to do digging new tunnels!
