I have two 160 watt mvb uvb bulbs and a regular lowes heat lamp to make a temperature gradient in the enclosure and two heat emitters for night to keep the temp up at night and a space heater set on 70 for the room The heat emmiters keep it at 85-90 all night in the upper part I have a small reptile waterfall for water movement, a cat litter pan with water and a humidifier. Does it sound like I'm on the right path? I've had Fred and Wilma over a month now and they're getting calmer. Both love bananas from my hand after work at 6pm. Some nights they just lick the piece of banana from my hand, but I take that as progress. During the day they mostly eat fresh collards, kale greens, butternut and accord squash. They love snap peas and collards. I mix just a tad of frozen veggies for color and add B1 once a week. I also crush a tums and sprinckle on mondays They won't touch fresh blackberrys. Does it sound like Im missing anything? The cool mist humidifier puts out a lot of air on low, so I have it on the daytime timers. Should I have it on all night too? The humidity is around 50-60 during the day and when it's off at night the humidity drops to 30. Will the noise and cool mist bug them when it's on at night or should I worry more about keeping the enclosures humidity up at night? Sorry so long. I shad two mbd igs 10 or so years ago and I didn't help them much even though I though I was at the time. I don't want a sick ig. Oh, they both passed their physicals and are good for 6 months to a year. Both are getting a touch of triple antibiotic on their noses.
