Thanks, Dell. I had her on heat tape for about 2 months a few months ago, for the reasons you describe (I thought maybe this might stop the regurging - but to no avail). I also originally had water in with her, and removed it to see if this would stop the regurging - but again, to no avail.
She is in an area with no visual disturbances. Her Rubbermaid is slightly translucent so she should feel secure. She is never handled (ever). She has every reason to thrive like her mate, yet she won't. It's saddening. I also avoid any potential cross-contamination for the reasons you describe.
I am almost convinced that this is a congenital defect as I've worked with Erycines for close to 10 years and have never had a regurge (not even with Rosys). It's all the more frustrating that it's a Rubber that's regurging, as they're not prone to this.
Sigh...
