Well, seems like I'm gonna be a grandmother! :D

A guy I know have a G.rosea he can no longer keep, he bought her from a dealer a few months ago.. He sent me some pics, and her enclosure is appaling. Green aquarium gravel, a tiny hide. I'm surprised she even laid a sac!

I'm supposed to pick her up on wedensday, and today tiny babies started pouring out of the hide, and he didn't even know she was gravid! So, for free, I'm getting a nice total of 51 G.roseas! You may envy me now, if you like! Now, to find some vials..

Will post pics when they get home, have a nice little place set up for her, so I hope she'll be comfortable!

Well, no, but he said he had only found 50 live ones.. We'll see, I guess.. Either way, They are slow growers, so I can keep them all for a while, if they don't sell off.. And I can sell to my LPS. I'll figure something out. But people are always saying you need a rosie in your collection! :D

Is there somewhere online I can buy them? Small delicups really aren't common in Norway, deli cups in general are a pain in the back to get a hold off..

I found somewhere online, but I'm unsure of size.. Would 4 oz be too big? I'm rubbish with your non-metric babble =p

Get the 4oz cups. They will work longer. I used 2 oz cups for my first slings and ended up rehousing them quickly into 4oz ones.

Fam.. If they are first instar.. You dont need anything right now.. I would suggest leaving them with the momma until they hit 2nd since they have already emerged from the sac...

Yeah, but they still need somewhere to live later in life.. I was just unsure of exactly how dinky they were, and how long they would stay superdinky.. :D
