I just realised tough I answered your question about your females bouncing back, it may not seem obvious that I did from my post.

Good nesting and feeding are all your females need, if they didnít like the nesting options they may have retained a little, this in turn affects both eggs and female.

When a female is fed mineral rich foods and has good nesting options, she most likely will nest in one shot (not test digging) this allows here to save energy for a prompt recovery.

On the other hand when fed high fat foods like super worms and such, females have enlarge fat bodies that holds little nutrition value for egg development, these empty lipids offer to developing embryos, they make for week babies if at all, but worst they drain energy out of females.

Correct your feeding and husbandry until you reach results you feel good with.

Trust me when you get to this level, everything seems so darn easy.

ps. Thia is part of the upper post I forgot.

I prefer pairs to trios, not all females get along well, groups are only advisable when you raise them together from hatchlings, and must be provided a large cage with sufficient resource.
