Hey all,

I'm trying to get this forum going.

I just got some jewls a few months ago. They are from Bert Langerwerf. I lost one of them but that is in no way Bert's fault. He produces wonderful, high quality animals.

I feel three factors worked in his demise.

1. I wait too long to sepparate them. I sepparated the largest two and the smallest two into two 10 gallon tanks. By the time I did this I think the smallest one was already feeling the effects of being low lizard on the totem pole.

2. I switched from crickets to silkworms. I had lots of silkworm chow left over and wanted to use it up. Silkworms are also naturally high in calcium. I don't think the little one ever really took to the silkies.

3. I think I was keeping them too dry. Both tanks have a sizable water bowl but now I also wet the substrate every other day or so. And we all know hatchlings dry out easily.

I would welcome any thoughts from you. I am facsinated by this species and have been for a long time. I'd love to see this forum grow.

Merry Christmas,

Brian
