I'm going to keep my 3 plateds in a big aquarium on my porch during the summer. Its about 6 feet long and 18 inches deep. Do you think that hay or straw would make a good substrate? It will be plenty humid enough thanks to our Virginia summers, but probably not so humid that that it would get moldy unless they spilt their water on it. I just wonder whether hay/straw woud be too dusty? which(if either) do you think would workthe best and look the best?
