In Reply to: Re: Is my female too small to have a clutch even at 14 months? posted by mikecoscia on November 25, 2002 at 15:13:42:

terrarium. When I got my male he was tiny too. He spend 6 months in a little 10 gallon or LESS. Though when I got him he was put in a 15 gallon and pretty much stayed the same. Then I got my 25 gallon tall, quite a bit bigger :) Well he grew SOOOOO fast and before you knew it he was 8". I am going to get a 25 gallon tall for her and see if that helps. Maybe they grow to suit their surroundings??? Right now she is in a 15 gallon tall. Maybe that's why she is so tiny. Well I will keep you posted.
I hope she will be okay. She is my very first breeder female. :(
and I was hoping to breed her this coming year sometime.

Thanks.

:Aww don’t trade her in for a new one! She is still just a baby, give her some time she may just surprise you. While 6.25” does seem a little smaller then normal, it is not that far off. She may just need some more time then others to reach full size. One of our females (above as a baby) was a little runt when we bought her, and we honestly did not think she would reach full size let alone breed. However she proved us wrong, it took 2 years but now she is 8”. We may attempt to breed her this year for the first time. So do not give up on her, she’ll get there eventually.
