Ok so I introduced males with females and saw immediate jerking of the females and the males were being super active crusing on the females backs and so on as you would expect from courting. My room temps are 83 constant with a hot spot of 93. I dropped the room temp after introduction to 79-80 and the hot spot down to 90. My light cycle was 16 on and 8 off and I cut that back to 14.5 on and 9.5 off and am going to cut that back to 12/12 over the next week. What problems do you think I could run into and what benefits could be gained from this and what do you think I should change. Like I said only my second year and my success rate last year was 25% at best and would like to see better odds. Should I pull the males and go into straight "hibernation" before someone becomes gravid or ? The only reason I did this is because one of my het toffee girls laid 10 infertiles and I didn't want all of them to do this. Much help would be appreciated. Post or call im excited/desperate and in need of some input. 740-616-5936
