Hi all

Today I' m going to give you the" secret" to breeding Pokies including Pmetallica/records shown below: :whistle:

02/07/'13. rotation of different males to ensure a good mating and enclosure temp at a stable 23 degrees Celsius/humidity 60%

started" flooding" tank on the 03/11/'13 and increased enclosure temp to 26 degrees Celsius/humidity 90%+

01/01/'14 increased enclosure temp to 31 degrees Celsius and stopped "flooding" a light mist keeping humidity @ 90%+

31/01/'14 egg sack laid by MF and removed on day 1

31/01/'14 placed in mechanical mom and maintained temp @ 29 degrees Celsius and humidity @90%

18/02/'14 removed sack after 19 days in mechanical mom. eggs with legs. some were infertile.

01/03'14 First instar molt @ 31 days old

13/03/14 Second instar mold @ 42 days old- separated due to cannibalism which will occur closer to the third instar molt so to reduce your mortality rates it is advisable to do this in my opinion.

25/3/2014- 3rd instars :-) day (54) temp and humidity as above.
