Photobucket

*sorry about the quality.

I have had her for 5 weeks as of today, she was purchased as an adult housed in a mixed sex tank. She seems pretty active still and by that I mean she still comes up to bask and hang/wrestle with her cage mate. I'll give you guys a diet break down, I guess i want to make sure I'm not over thinking things.

Diet break down (all feeders gut loaded:

Week 1: 3 adult crickets. one on 12/17, 12/20, 12/24
Week 2: 3 adult Dubia Roaches. one on 12/27, 12/30, 1/2
Week 3: 3 adult Dubia Roaches. one on 1/5, 1/8, 1/11
Week 4: 3 adult Dubia Roaches. one on 1/14, 1/17, 1/20
Week 5/6: Ate 1 adult Dubia on 1/23. Fasted from 1/25 to 2/3 (she ate an adult Dubia on 2/4)

I just want to make sure I'm not over feeding, and I have been trying to follow a 3-4 feeding regiment. I have looked for embryos but I cannot see them. Anyway, I will be grateful for any help or advice.

Just being curious, where do you look for them at, on the sides?

As far as I've heard/read you can see them on the side and they look like rice

It's a coco fiber substrate, I keep it pretty moist. There is also a little frog moss which I use as a top substrate in some parts of the tank.
