    Talking Anyone here interested in Vinegaroons?

    Hello, forum.

    Now, recently, I've been planning on getting some kind of second pet aside from my juvenile bullfrogs. Perhaps an entertaining one, so if guests come over to my house, they will focus on this pet, not Gnag and Bumpy, my juvenile bullfrogs. Originally, a crayfish was an option, but I'd need a 20G tank and a good filter, as well as a lot of dechlorinated water for that. The other option was a Common Green treefrog, but I felt that I needed something that required less care and/or maintenance. Anyways, I had been watching BBC, and a kind of arachnid called a Vinegaroon was on it. It was love at first sight

    Of course, I assumed that they were not in the pet trade, and that owning one as a pet was simply going to be a dream. That is, until my friend said to me: "Hey, Caspian, guess what I saw at Petland! A Vinegaroon!"

    Imagine my reaction.

    I'm coming into a bit [90$+] of money in a week or so, so I was wondering if anyone had any advice or suggestions. Here is what I'm going to pick up for the Vinegaroon before I get it. Tell me if I've missed anything:

    5 Gallon tank [Or my spare 10G, but if I use that, I'll need a 5G. I'm keeping it as a hospital tank if one my frogs gets sick.]

    Lid for the tank

    Coconut husk for substrate

    Water dish

    Heat lamp

    Rock cave

    Various objects [Basking rock, plants to hide beside, etc.]

    Superworms + Mealworms

    Note: Should I feed the Vinegaroon crickets as well, or would those be too fast?

    Can't wait to get the Vinegaroon, it'll be quite an interesting pet. But my focus will and always will remain on the frogs. They're gorgeous

    I only found out they existed about 4 weeks ago!

    They're nocturnal, so I doubt I'll get many pictures. Still, I'll try
    Thanks, I can't wait to get him/her
