So after working on the car for a while I came in to see this in my exilicauda setup: Just thought I'd share some pics.
It seems to me that these guys grow slower than the vittatus but now that I look at the dates etc I guess they're growing at about the same rate.i have 34 little babies (all 2nd to 3rd instar) from 3 mothers back in february. i keep them all in vials on peat moss and mist 1-2 times a week.
they should be growing faster, but mine just seem to want to take their sweet time. :?
Well I'm not sure about damp but some fairly decent air humidity. I use a false bottom set-up in my pill vials (30 dram). I moisten them about once a week so that the bottom of the vial is moist but the surface remains dry. They've gone through periods where the moss is bone dry but apparently it's not good for them to have low humidity in the long-term as juveniles.wow, nice thread. i didn't know that. so basically babies of C.exci must be a little bit damp or not bone dry. thaks for the information.
really? cool!!!! i still suggest sooner you should separate the babies from the adults...Wow. So something really interesting happened today. Most of them came off the moms back today. I came back a few hours later and half are on the original moms back and half are on the other females back... I have 2 females and male in that tank...
I have never seen that before. And none of them are fighting or being eaten... Im still gonna seperate as many as i can.
