10% protein a week? Pure protein? Like meat?
If pure protein that's waaaaay too much... should be little bit of protein per month like one serving of high protein catfood a month
and you should feed them more than 20% fruit/week - vary the fruit but it should be 50/50 with leafy greens
My redfoot is 15 months old - here are its weight counts last few months for comparison...
I always weigh on the or about the 1st of each month after soaking - some slower growing months and some faster but I think over 100g in 8 months is great
Jan 2020 - 187g
Feb 2020 - 198g
Mar 2020 - 208g...
Many people on here know more about sulcatas than I do but I would think you need much larger than 6x3 - that's not even big enough for a adult redfoot let alone a sulcata. But for now it's probably OK until it grows. Most people put sulcatas outside with a night box.
All torts when moved go off their food for a while. Every time I switch enclosures with my redfoot he goes off food for 5-10 days. In nature it's not uncommon for torts to stop eating. If it's last more than 10 days I 'd worry then. Just keep offering fresh foods.
Orange Day Lily (Hemerocallis fulva)
OK to feed Redfoots this flower? It's gone crazy growing on our property. Flowers only last a day and are bright orange with some yellow.
My neighbors refer to them as "tiger lily" but I don't think that's right. Tiger Lily (Lilium lancifolium) are...
I used a heavy shower curtain and then attached it on the sides (inside) about 5" up with gorilla tape. Has worked perfectly fine for almost a year. Good thing about the tape is its waterproof and seals every gap.
My enclosure gets to 99% at night and drops to 85-90% during the day
Ambient at 80F with a few warmer spot in the 90-100F range during day - when main CHE's go off at night my ambient drops to 70-75F around the room temperature the enclosure is in with one small night bulb that rises one spot at...
After looking around this site and getting advice this is what I constructed last summer for my redfoot. It is still going strong, no leaks, no smells, no mold. Works great.
Finally built a new day enclosure for my 1 yr old redfoot
June -Sept is the only viable time I can get the little turd outside and I'll never leave him out overnight - too many raccoons, skunks, and cats in my neighbourhood.
First day out today as the temp was +85F and high humidity makes it...
