PostSubject: Good deal on Emps?   11/30/2009, 7:18 pm

Ok so I have come across a deal from an online vendor for Emps for $8 each, free shipping. From all my research I know this is a good deal, and since i can find very few locally and none less than $15@ I am planning on taking advantage of the deal. Any advice on what to do when they arrive. I am planning to order a m/f pair. How long should I wait before introducing foods? Just basically seeking any advice for starting things off right.

That's a great deal!

Try to have their setups already completed before arrival. Give them a few days to settle in before introducing prey items.

Im hoping to put them in one tank I have a 10 gal. thats pretty much already set up, and will eventually move them to a 50 gal. or at the very least a 20 if i can get my hands on one again.

Ten gallons is fine for a pair. As Brandon said, let them settle in a bit before offering prey (a lot of people offer on the first day and panic when they don't eat).

i have a 20 gallon wide for my pair, only because i want plenty of room in case fights break out and i need to buy a divider. :p

plus the male, Goldar, loves to run around. when hes not, hes happy in his burrow.
