This time my eco-dome only last for 3 days. I think that this eco-dome is the worst eco-dome which I made. I think that there was a mistake while making the eco-dome.
I think the problem was when I placed the carrot in the eco-dome for cricket's food.
Changes need to make:
I tried to place more food for cricket to eat and placed some dried leaves and dirt for decoration. Also, more dirt in case that crickets might dig some holes after few days.
My both crickets died after 3 days and I cannot find dead bodies of the crickets. I think everything worked well, however, I think that the carrot wasn't good for the cricket. Also, there was some mold because the carrot was left. Also, I think that the place where I left my eco-dome has been getting more sunlight than other times. So, I thought that the water compared to the amount of sunlight was very little. Still, I am going to leave the same amount of plants & water to have oxygen in my eco-dome. Also, I am going to make sure that the soil is wet for my plants & cricket.
I found out that my 2 crickets were alive. It was not my best eco-dome but it also wasn't my best. This time there was some smell and some rotten foods left. I was able to find 2 crickets. I concluded that the box is too moist. However, the crickets survived!
I decided to place less water in the container because the eco-dome was too moisture from the water which I placed for crickets. Also, I decided to place different food for cricket this time. I placed apple for the first time, but this time, I placed some carrots. I replaced rocks with more dirt in the container because I thought that there was too less dirt (soil) in the container (eco-dome).
My both crickets survived 13 days. I think everything worked well, however, the container was to moisture by too many waters so I might change that while I'm building next eco-dome. Also, think that there was mold because the apples were left in a humid habitat. Next time I might try 3 crickets but, I think this will make them eat each other. I did some research on what crickets eat and they get water from food which they eat. Because they cannot swim. So, I'm thinking to keep placing apple for cricket's food.
I did some research on cricket’s food, and I found out that crickets will eat almost anything including cornflakes, oats, granola, birdseed, lettuce, or other raw vegetables. So I think that keeping apples as a food resource for the cricket will be fine.
