That aws avtually helpful, thanks. Where in So Cal are you?
That is a little bit simpler as long as you can get away with keeping several kings in the same tub, it reduces costs on heat pads, thermostats, tubs, etc.
I have 6 kings, mostly different species and ages, (1 getula adult, 1 Leonis adult, 3 Leonis of different size babies, 1 Pyro baby and 1 Alterna baby); most are choice selected specimens so I am reluctant to do that. It would be pricy to buy heat pads and thermostats for all of them. and I am not keeping up with water every couple days, (dishes go dry).
we had a week of slightly warmer temps, where I was able to keep temps in the house up to high 60s at night and starting to get low 70s in the day. Tonight I tried a feeding.....got the Pyro, and one Leonis baby to take FT pinks, but Leonis spit his out after a few minutes but then ate it again after about half hour. The rest are not interested. So I wasted 3 hours of time I don't have on that effort. Also haven't had time to build the underground habitat either. Need to do it though, before it gets too hot this summer and I have to go back to the frozen water jug cooling system.
