The plastron is clean the last time I checked, I have to look more closely but I'm currently on a trip. Rodent damage would be impossible, I have him in an enclosure and the only time he's out I/(or someone at home) watches him while he basks, soaks and graze daily.
I got flamed real bad on a...
Oh I didn't take offense at all. I'm grateful for the help.
I can cover his enclosure with newspaper.
I'll keep the basking lamp and CHE operational
I'll remove the water dish in case he swims in it with the lamasil on him
He'll get to bask in the sun daily and graze.
Unfortunately Nicco has developed shell rot. His routine has been the same since I got him last year. He's in an enclosure with 4 temp zones, he gets to graze outside daily, he's on a grass diet + mazuri on the side, he gets reptile vitamins and calcium supplements, he gets soaked 30...
I've replaced my Exo Terra 100 W basking lamp (non UV) twice in the past 6 months. I was wondering if I can use a 50W Halogen Lamp in its place? I'll be measuring the temp using an IR gun. My only concern here is if it might have the same effect as a coiled lamp (blindness/burns)...
Thanks @Tom ! That's quite a complement coming from the Sulcata guru. :) I do have additional questions though.
How long before I'll need to add organic fert?
Do I just chop some off and keep growing them?
What'r the lifespan of these plants? Wondering every when I should reset.
I bought organic soil (with compost) and put them in these containers. I then added testudo mix and african grazer seeds from tortoise supply. Plus another half inch of soil on top. This is 6 days after. So stoked for these to flourish so I can start feeding them to Nicco.
How many hatchlings can I put in one enclosure? A 5x2 with temp gradients of course. I'm thinking of getting another batch of Sullies :) Also I have one 4 month old in a 5x2, can I add more with him? (I know just two would be bad, so I'd have to add at least two.)
