Any swelling of the abodmen is a good thing after a mating..... Continue to feed her till she refuses food, then sit back and wait to see if the mating was sucessful. But since you just mated them be aware that you are going to be waiting 2-6 months its not going to happen next week.

My smithi (different species I know) mated last July and just laid the sac after almost exactly 9 months.

You should keep her with you, unless your dad is more experienced in Ts.
And, good luck, my rosea breedin attempt went horribly bad.

What is "gel water"? You shouldn't have any gel in their water. It should be straight water.

Gel water is generally used for crickets...........so they don't drown themselves
LOL! Yeah, I know what it is. I was just hoping the OP had a typo and wasn't really using it.

Just use a shallow dish/lid with water in it. The t won't drown.

Pink, you really need to do a lot of reading. I defended you in that other post, but you are already trying to breed, and you don't even know the basics. Educate yourself for your T's sake
