I feel as though Aretha, an MEP hatchling who came to live with me last week, is doing well so far... eating, soaking, exploring the Vision 632 I've got her set up in.
She weighed 50g on arrival, and 6.4cm.
The temps in her enclosure have been cycling consistently: from 75 in the morning when the light first comes on to 83 in the afternoon when it goes off for the day... a cool/dark end of 72 to a warm/bright end (during light hours) of 92.
The RH in the enclosure has been in the range from 96% to 84%.
- Should the temperature range hit higher highs and lower lows while cycling with the light/dark schedule?
- Should the enclosure have a broader temperature range from warm to cool end?
- Is the RH too high? (I have covered some of the vents, so could easily lower the rh)
