...everyone has to figure out what works best for them. As much as I generally try to emulate what I see the other people in the hobby do most of the time, especially those I have a lot of respect for and trust, if something just isn't seeming to work right, then sometimes you have to find what does work.

That being said though, all the people in my...lets just call it loosely, circle of friends...from the past who I knew worked with rainbow boas, either brazilian or colombian, always kept breeding adults in large community cages, usually groups of 2.2 or 2.3. The anery/het litter I had, I never pulled the male. I only put him in a different cage while I was pulling babies so I wouldn't have to try to watch out for him trying to sneak out on me too. My colombians I did remove the males once I was sure the female was gravid, but that is because I have a couple of very enthusiastic breeders that just absolutely would not leave her alone. I haven't seen them combat, I don't know that they do or would (I don't think so?) but I have seen two males both with their tales all wrapped around the females at the same time together in a big knot and I don't have a clue inside that mess of snake tails who was actually breeding...lol.

The only other time I'm used to seeing rainbows housed individually is if it's a young one that wasn't wanted into the breeding mix yet, or soon after birth putting a female by herself if she's being fed a little more often just so she'll already be separated.

Which ever way ya'll are doing things, I say keep at it because you're obviously getting some great results!
