Why do you prefer the fake carpet over newspaper? Aesthetics? Newspaper much easier to clean. No spot cleaning, you just dump out the dirty paper. Spot cleaning impossible with snake that defecates so much.
Why the hole in the hidebox on the side? I have tried both, hole on top works just as well and keeps moist substrate in better.
Sphagnum moss works great for me. I have used it for a variety of colubrids for years, including indigos up to 7' in length. I have never once had an eyecap or shedding issue of any kind. Have you had a problem with sphagnum moss?
Glad to see at least one other "indigo nerd" on this forum. I mean that in a good way.
