I've raised many redfoots with no pyramiding. Cypress mulch substrate, moist most of the time, but I let it dry out completely once a week. I feed and soak every day. Feed Romaine, dandelion, leaf lettuce, kale, collards, various veggies, and about 10% fruit. Calciun D3 almost every day. No UV lights, only an incandesant bulb for light and heat. Keep at 80F cool side and 95F under light. Don't use too large of a container for the cage. These tend to dry out and have cool areas. I use a rubbermaid sweaterbox. Make sure the hide is in a warm spot(82F -86F). Lots of calcium D3. Good Luck
