Nope, it's G. bicolor.
I keep them in a terrarium with only a water dish.:)

No problem!
I use purified drinking water, I guess they are not picky with water since they only very seldom visit the water dish.

O.O but how you going to clean the soil?
how often you going to clean or even change to new soil?

the water dish is easy to clean, just take it out and clean?

They are very adjustable not like the shrimp
I heard you can add some calcium powder in their diet occationally so they won't have molting problem
like those raptile one for stronger bones
