I'm in Arizona. I have a closed system enclosure. Best for them so you can regulate the humidity & temp. I have Indians & Sri Lankans now, I'm just trying to get more for my breeding program. I'm looking for 1-2 female Indians & 1 male & 1-2 female Sri Lankans.
OK keep me posted. I have a question while we are at it. I have heard conflicting information when it comes to lighting, UVA & UVB. I was reading a article from a Indian/Sri Lankan breeder & he was saying he uses led lights at 5000-5500K & keeps them on for 14 hours a day, keeps his UVB lights on for 4 hours a day & keeps his UVA basking lights on with the Leds for 14 hours a day in a closed system. He says they only need 4 hours of UVB a day & it extends the life of the bulb. I tried to do this but I'm thinking that 14 hours of UVA basking is a bit too much & it lowers the humidity a lot faster & my foggers are working overtime. What do you think about this?
These pics are comparing growth of some of my stars from last year to this year. They spend the majority of their time outside in Phoenix unless temps drop below 70. When temps go above 110, I move them to a pen that is partially shaded.
