    Has anyone here had any experience with a machine that distills water? They sell them on amazon

    i checked out the RO system you suggested @MissSkittles but for every gallon of RO water it makes 4 gallons of waste water go down the drain. I don’t pay for my water bill, the apartment owner does and I don’t think they would allow that. The only other thing I can find is a water distiller and...

    I got the new Reptirisers for my uvb light!

    I’ve had them since Christmas but hadn’t used them yet. I put them up today and they work great! I need to raise my basking branch now though because the reptirisers lift the uvb light up about 5 inches I think. A guy on Etsy makes them and they were one of the 12 days of Christmas items that...

    Eustis ate out of my hand!!

    This morning I tried hand feeding Eustis once again and he ate two wax worms out of my hand!! I have been waiting 7 months for this and am very excited about it! He’s finally learning to trust me I think. I only feed him maybe 2 wax worms once a week or two so he doesn’t get them often and he...

    Needs to be top fill, and be able to attach pvc piping to humidifier spout. Does anyone have any ideas? I hurt my shoulder and it’s difficult to fill the one I have because I have to remove the chamber and turn it upside down to fill it and it keeps accumulating water under the unit which is not...

    The colder it gets here in Maine the more the heat is on in my apartment. I keep it at 69 during the day and 65 at night. The humidity in my Jackson’s enclosure used to be fine but now I’m having a hard time getting it over 70% during the night. I have 3 sides of his enclosure covered with a...

    Eustis weight gain

    Hi everyone! I weighed Eustis the other day and he weighed 40 grams. When I got him 5 months ago he weighed 30 grams. Is that a healthy weight gain for a Jackson’s Xanth in that time frame? He seems to have grown an inch or so as well. He was 8-9 months old when I got him so he’s 13-14 months...

    What do we do now that the time has changed?

    My lights were set on a timer back in June when I got my Jackson’s to come on at 7 am and go off at 7 pm. Now that the time has changed they of course went off at 6 pm tonight. Do I reprogram my timer so the lights are back to 7 am on and 7 pm off or do I leave them so they come on at 6 am and...

    I bought this shooting gallery from TK Chameleons that I know a lot of you use but all the bugs are falling out the bottom!!

    Hanging on the door a lot?

    Eustis has been hanging on the door of his cage recently and he’ll hang there for hours showing his stress colors until I open the door and get him down and put him on his branch and then he immediately turns a pretty green. Whats up with that?

    Not much going on now. It’s getting colder here. It’s in the 60s during the day. I set my heater for 68 during the day and 65 at night. Eustis is still looking for love so he’s all over his cage. He’s still not eating much. Today he had one tiny cricket and 2 small silk worms. I think he ate...

    Well it seems Eustis has hit sexual maturity

    He’s been patrolling his cage and leaving me little white sac like things hanging from the branches! I never have seen this before but I remember Beman talking about her Cham Beman doing this. Do they slow way down on food intake usually when this happens?
