That's what I figured. These are big bugs............I'm thinking at least 10 per emp........they just seem to take up so much space individually, right?

Two would be fine in there. Give them both hides and you'll be fine.

Okey dokey then.

One other question. Do you guys quarantine newbies for a period before putting them with an established pet?

hmm thats a good question i would like a definite answer for myself. i would guess not though,just give it a thorough examination checking for mites,injuries,responsiveness,weakness etc.

i have a couple of questions for you. you said since you got a heat lamp your emp is always out.ive been told a hiding emp is a happy emp.what are the temps now that you got that lamp and whats the wattage rating,are you running a dimmer on it?whats are you gauging the temps with?

im just concerned that its too hot and your emp is always out trying to find an exit from its perpetual heat.we both wouldnt want that. Sad

Hey Shining.

I got a 50 watt heat lamp. Previously the temps were sitting around 70-74 farenheit, now the gauge is reading between 81 and 83 regularly, on really warm days it kicks up to about 85. I use a digital thermometer/humidity gauge I bought from radio shack. It also has an "outside" sensor cord, which I have on the cooler side of the tank so I can get an idea of what the temps are throughout the entire tank.

I don't think she's unhappy because she's coming out and sticking her butt up TOWARD the heat source or sitting right under the lamp. I was thinking maybe she was coming out looking for the warmth. She has one hide on the left side of the tank and one hide in the center back of the tank. The lamp is concentrated on the center of the tank, so if she needs to get cooler, she can go to any side of the tank other than the center.

My room is pretty dark since my window sits away from any direct sunlight, so I'm thinking she's just thinking it's a nice warm evening now and is coming out to get warm?

I keep it on a timer. It comes on at 6:30 am and goes off at 9:00 pm.

sheesh you live in az too and in a hot part as well as i do those temps are a total contrast to what i get with my 50watt..my 50 watt easily gets to 100+ even at the coolest part of the day without a dimmer.but then again my room is usually 79-82f where yours sounds a bit cooler.
yeah it sounds like your emp is just trying to get its warmth on.no emp jerky there cheers

ps.you should get a pic of your emp putting its but towards the lamp,thatd be funny.

I think they live their life in a state of general indifference with moments of panic and a drive to feed.
