Haha! While I am flattered, my shit does stink. There are lots of very experienced keepers on this forum who may disagree with me about the basking light, and there are many whose opinion I would trust over my own.*actually, always listen to Heika...she has great success and sound advice
Have they started cocooning for you, Brad?I have ended up letting mine grow to full size and cocoon in the silkworm drawer. Hopefully I'll have breeding moths soon and can start over.
Dark coloration can be an indication that he is cold, but it can also show that he is stressed about something. Don't assume that just because he is dark that you need to increase the heat.Does the dark coloration show that he is cold?
Try and get an extra misting or two a day in there too, if you can. I wouldn't add any more heat at the moment.. maybe in a month or so, you might want to take your basking temp up a bit higher, but for now, you are maxed on heat.We will try to run the dripper for longer periods.
Will the extra heat and water help with the eye issue?
