Looks like that molt should come soon! I think I only have one that looks like that now.

What temps are you keeping them at?

Thats what I wanted to hear from the Professional. I keep them at abour 85 to 90 degrees and thye thrive in it. They have progressed in the stage of molting faster then they were previously. The both look like your last one that you got shot of with your sisters camera. Thanks Mr. J, appreciate it.

I'm no pro but thanks anyway Smile

I keep mine at 80-85F during the day, then I open the bug cabinet at night to let some heat out to simulate a cooler night. Although I have a night time bulb in 24/7, I should have a daytime one hooked up as well. I think I'll stop at the hardware store and pick up some cheap $4 light domes (beats buying them at a pet store!).

My big guy has been fat for a couple of weeks now and refuses food. Apparently he's refusing to molt as well. They seem to be stubborn with their molts unlike species like B. jacksoni. I've noticed they are a lot more consistent with their molts. I could guess the day that they'd molt but it'd never be off by more than 3-4 days.

I have a "runt" in each of my collections of LQs and B. jacksoni. They take a lot longer to grow and are smaller than all of the other ones for some reason. I guess its pretty common to have a runt in the same brood.

Do you have any pics of the entire enclosure? I'm curious how you're keeping them other than on purple sand and that coco husk (?).

I have a "runt" as well; I believe it is a male but hard to tell right now. The are very stubborn when it comes to a molt and mine will only eat if the cricket is disabled. I will take a picture of the enclosures so I can get Mike's and your advise on them. They are my favorite out of all that I have. Your right about the lights; pet shops charge too much and I get the ones with the dimmer to offset my conscience and lack of experience. I'll get those pix though so you can check it out. Thanks for your advise.

They are on the verge of molting, finally. The both have become very lethagic (sp) are are showing the "new look" as evident in the first picture. I feed them each two medium size crickets, gut loaded with Gerber rice baby food and a type of "reptil dust" (once every two weeks). I also gut load crickets on fish flakes.
