    So my male C. Marshalli just matured which means after he makes a sperm web I can finally start my first breeding project. I want to have everything setup before she lays the eggs. What size vials should I get to put the slings in when I separate them? Will 2.5 dram work?

    I would go bigger on the vials. As slings, ceratogyrus do fine with extra space.

    Good luck with the breeding man.

    40 is better. Also, remember they are FAST. Don't underestimate them because they are slings and a Cerato. I had a Cerato sling shoot out of a vial like that, onto the kitchen floor, and keep on going, didn't miss a beat.

    It seems like overkill to use the tube method on something so small but they will shock you at their speed. The other way is to put a bunch of smaller brand new Tupperware containers in a larger one. That way they have a series of slippery walls to climb before they run under whatever you have then sitting on.

    I've dealt with speedy slings in the past, I think I can handle the rehouse.
