Thanks for the info. I have heard Pinkies were actually pretty good protein, but I havn't tried it yet. I am just not sure if mine are bored of their current food or maybe it's the michigan weather and they can sense it's still somewhat winter. Have you tried Hornworms (Not wild off tomatos but bred ones for reptiles?) Have also heard Earthworms, but havn't tried that either.

Both of them like I said are extremely active and have fat tails. I don't see any symptoms of MBD (I dust all their food, with the Repcal/Reptivite mix as I said) and neither are skinny. When I bathe them 1-2 times a week they sprint across the tub on the water and basically don't stop moving in there as well. 2 rocks to climb on of course so it's not just them having to float.

Crazy as it seems both of mine look almost exactly like yours lol. Except they are more Green than Teal/Blue.

Are yours just maybe a different mix of basilisk than mine or is there a way to get that blue color?

I am getting a MH bulb to increase the brightness of the tank. Right now I use 2 5.0 UVB for their basking spots (Not through mesh so it's direct) and then 2, 2.0's for added Light.
