I am soon to have some hatchlings running around. I have searched through the forum and found many different opinions, but am wondering what you think about feeding hatchlings. Loren I saw in one of your posts that they needed to be fed 2-3 crickets every half hour for 24hrs for I think it was 2wks (correct me if I am wrong)? Lester I also saw in one of your responses that you recommend Pogonomyrmex californicus or Pogonomyrmex maricopa bought from infowest.com. I am wondering if these are the same harvester ants that I am getting from antsalive.com These harvester ants are just so mean, I am nervous to feed even one to the hatchlings! Your advice is appreciated.
Second questions is about watering. I have a water dish that actually has a bubbler in it so that it is not still water. The dish originally is about 1.5 inches deep with water, but I have filled it with about three large rocks. Will this work as a water source?
