RE: my new darlings!!!
Ouch, those are a lot of little lizards to take care of. Are they all leopard geckos?
How many pet lizards total do you have now? How many of each species?

What are some daily routines you do for them? Smile

well, i am up to 10 leopard geckos, 3 male and 7 female. and linus, whom is the only of his kind :p my schedule is pretty random for now, it will steady out in about a week but:

i feed linus about 3-4 days a week, always in the morning, i dust one meal a week with plain calcium, and one meal a month with calcium with d3. normally i feed him on the mornings i am not being rushed.

in the evenings is when all the adult geckos get fed because it is when they are the most active, i check them in the morning and evening and give water when they need it. the babies get their food in the morning because i usually have some extra time to spend with them and make sure they are eating. they all have plain calcium in lids at all times and i dust with the d3 calcium once a week.

once a week all their enclosures get cleaned, except linus's. his enclosure is self sustaining, all i have to do is wipe the bottom every now and then to get the dead leaves.

well..that about sums up my busy schedule for the animals lol. i have to do all this around school during the day and work in the evenings and weekends Smile

its alot of lizards, i admit, im turning into a junkie -.- but just wait till you guys see the babies i will be producing next year Wink

***also, none of the females have names, so i need name ideas!!***

RE: my new darlings!!!
It looks like you have some good routines. Me too have some check list on a daily and weekly basis for my pets.

It makes sense for you to have a lot of pet lizards. Did you once say you want to start a pet store specialized in lizards? Smile It is a good idea to show your customers how much of an expert you are since you have a lot of them yourself. They will be more likely to take your advices on what they actually need to (buy from you haha). They might also want to buy some babies off you too when you have more than you can handle. Do you plan to sell some of the baby lizards produced at home?

I am not good with names. Maybe some other members will be able to come up with some good ones for you.

RE: my new darlings!!!
Congratulations Amanda! Is that second eclipse tremper albino? It's a nice looking group. What is a "Snow Fasciolatus"? Is that a mack snow combined with another morph, or is it a different snow gene? And I guess I have more technical questions, lol. How are you heating your little rack setup there? Looks like a nice setup. I like the doubled up hides, if you have heat underneath them that's a great idea for different temped hides in a small space, I'm going to tell you right now that I'm going to steal that. Big Grin I'll pm you later, I take it you got a good deal Smile

im not sure about the faciolatus gene, so i found an artical and it seems pretty simple: http://www.leopardgeckowiki.com/index.ph...asciolatus

im not sure about the eclipse, the guy had gotten her from an expo/show ($100 for just her, hint hint) and although she doesnt show clear signs of being an eclipse, the baby eclipse is hers and she shows all the signs.

i have the backs of the tubs raised ever so slightly and i have a reptile brand heat cord under the back controlled by a dimmer Smile next spring ill be adding a shelf on top of each container row to make room for more, will be having lots of babies!! just gotta decide what male i wanna use. all ive got is my little aptor/sunglow man...but i might use this guy's blackhole/bumble bee male if he lets me Smile

i got the hide idea from the guy i got these girls from! lol he had foam regular hides on the bottom and a laying container on top, so i kinda borrowed the idea, but my plastic containers were too slippy on eachother, so i used a rubber band to hold them together Big Grin
