Congrats on your catch, I love it when that happens!

When working with gophers and bulls I have found that the more work I do to make the environment for the eggs perfect the worse results I get. These days I cover the bottom of a small 9qt sterilite container with vermiculite that is damp (the point at which no additional water can be rung out), put the lid on, and put the eggs on the top shelf of my closet and mostly forget about it. The sterilite container has a few small dremel holes for air flow. Every couple weeks I usually run through the containers and mist the eggs that look like they need it.

Just remember to relax, unless you keep your house an icebox room temperature has always worked great for me. We keep our house at 75 in the summer and the shelf on top of my closet which is on the top floor (where hot air rises) is probably 77-78ish.

Good luck!
