Thread: Can crickets climb tank walls?

  1. #1

    Default Can crickets climb tank walls?

    I have a 2.5 gallon tank that iím using for a baby pacman. i put 2 crickets in last night, this morning there was just one left and i just checked and both are gone. i added two more because if he did eat them both he hasnít eaten in weeks and i want him to eat plenty. i keep my cricket keeper below the tank and did find a cricket i. the corner of my room. i donít know if he escaped the cricket keeper or the tank so i moved rhe cricket keeper to another room. i donít have a lid for my tank but iíll get one tomorrow. do you guys think the crickets could have escaped the tank? just to be sure the new ones donít escape i put a makeshift lid on using plastic wrap and put several holes in the middle.

    it depends on the size of cricket from my experience like the adult crickets can jump and reach the lids or in your case just jump out i think medium sized crickets could but small or baby probably couldn't. Crickets are very good at escaping if you frog gets big enough you could try to swap him/her to Nightcrawlers aka earthworms i got money those won't jump out :P just make sure they are pet safe nightcrawlers and not fish bait nightcrawlers
