Ive also bought some from petco and I've had nothing but problems with them. I went to a different pet store and havent had a problem since. I think it had something to do with the supplier they were getting them from.
Its been a little while since I posted photos of nyxson so I figured I should share some new pics. He's now 8 months old and growing like a weed. Im amazed by his colors and personality everyday :)
I usually buy 150 at a time for the week, its filled with both egg crates and paper towel rolls, temps around 26c id say. I pick them up at my local petstore when they arrive in town. Its not humid in the container either.
They provided you with a terrible set up! That poor little guy. You need to change A LOT of about your set up and as soon as possible. The basic care sheet will help out a lot. Think vertical when setting up his enclosure. They need climbing space and lot of plants to hide in to feel safe!
So here is my problem... I house all my crickets for the week in a 27QT/26L plastic container with a hole cut into the top of it for air. I feed crickets my random weekly gut load. Usually a mix of dandelion greens, mustard greens, sweet potato, Repashy super pig, berries and a few weekly...
Hey guys, I was just wondering if you guys think my little guy is big enough for his big boy cage. Hes about 5 1/2 months old and growing like a weed. I know it varies on when they should be moved up to a new cage but figured it was worth a try to ask! Thanks in advance!
