Usually it is indeed night when they come out, but if you leave lights on it may confuse them.

Additionally, most emperors in my experience take a few days to a week to "settle in" and get used to their new surroundings.

quite a variety of feeders you can give them.
Crickets, roaches, grasshoppers, meal worms...these are the more common.

I don't like dealing with roaches or meal worms, so I stick to the crickets.

We also have a sexing subforum with quite a few emp threads.

Sometimes all that means is that food wandered down the hole.
