I am not entirely new to millipedes, but I am about to get my first A. gigas and I'm trying to figure out whether or not to attach a heat pad to the side of the enclosure. From what I can tell, there doesn't seem to be much of a consensus on this issue. Some say that species from warmer tropical climates should be provided extra heat and some say it is unnecessary and possibly dangerous. Neither opinion seems to be derived from ignorance concerning millipede care, so I thought I'd create a thread about it. I'm particularly interested in hearing what keepers who have had success in breeding millipedes have to say, especially concerning A. gigas.
