Hi everyone!
Thanks so much for the great tips! I am going to feed them later today, hopefully they will eat without problems. That will make me very happy!

The sexing info is great, thanks jobi! I will look at them after I get back, maybe tomorrow even. I don't want to hold them before they are fed.

I actually put them into the shower yesterday in a screen type of cage, just to let them get really wet and humid, also to help with getting them properly hydrated. As stressful or not as it may have been, they all colored up beautifully, and really seemed to enjoy it!

I do still have one question though... Is a long tank better than a tall one? Or it is the other way around? I have been reading posts about their need for humidity here, as well as elsewhere, and it seems that most people feel they need it really high. I don't think daily fluctuations in between mistings can be helped, so I think I have a little bit of both ideas there. I also have found, with many other species too, that a densely planted and arranged environment seems to help them feel secure and acclimate much better.

I think their tank is a little too small for three of them, but it may have to work for now. I may post pics of them, we'll see if I have time to! Won't be today, tomorrow maybe? I totally understand jobi's thinking about the impulse buying. That's usually how I get interested in a species. I see what I like, then I research the heck out of it, then go and buy it! Sort of what I did here! Well, thanks so much to all of you who responded, lots of good info for me to mull over! Thanks.


Regards,
Robert
