That is some interesting info. I have been pumping nonfeeders with Fancy Feast catfood mixed with pinkies for two years now and I think it works much better than pinks alone. What I was not sure of is if this would affect their furture growth and fertility. Good to hear that you have had success breeding lampros that were started on pet food.
Normally my incubators are set at 79-81, with occasion spikes to 87 depending on outside temps. The last two years I decided to try room temps during the later half of incubation. My room temps were not monitored but typically flutuate pretty widely in the late summer, from 87 to 68, although most of the time they are 68-74. At these temps I got hatches at 90 days and many of the babies were abberrant. I am curious what your humidity was and what kind of substrate you kept your eggs on.
