dan could probably give you some good info.

i re-read your original post. personally, i would not put an 8g hog that is not feeding well into an enclosure that big. i would take it out, and put it into a smaller tupperware container. i use 2.7 qt rubermaids. works great for hatchlings! 1/2" of wood chips, 80 ambient and 90 degree hot spot. couple of small plastic hides, small fresh water bowl, lights on a 16hr day timer, and good to go. not a beautiful setup, but easy to maintain. it also allows good access to them and to be able to monitor them until they are established. once it's feeding well, put it in something larger. this starter hatchling setup has worked for me for my dozen hogs....
