I really don't agree with the 2 females in a tank, but that is just my opinion.
******I am going to see what I can do. The girl I bought them off has had them together pretty much all their lives. I got the big tank so I could put 2 together. What am I going to do am that huge cage??? I think I have an idea. Here it goes:
15 gallon-tall - one female
15 gallon other - one female
10 gallon (only tank I have *my crickets are in it*) - one female (plus she is tiny 6.5")
25 gallon - one Male his way I can put one female in for a couple of days!!
Then put my crix in a rubbermaid container.
Does this sound better??? I think that is what I will do.
My poor cresteds have been moved around a lot trying to figure things out!
As far as freaking out about not having enough room, i hope you are aware that those 3 females can produce up 60 eggs in one season. All those babies can be costly to raise. You need seperate housing for all of them (they do much better that way), food (prob a few boxes of crix a month), and also the time it involves (cleaning, feeding, etc). I don't mean to sound harsh, i just want you to know what is involved.
*****No I don't take it harsh at all. It isn't as though I don't have a lot of space. I was just trying to make it as easy as possible. I purchase large amounts of crix anyway because of my BD, which I am NOT breeding LOL. I know it will be lots of work. I have even asked my boss if I could take one day off a week, plus my weekends, to get things together and keep my cresteds health.
Since your new at this i suggest you just breed one of your females to experince what it is all about. If you can handle it and afford it, breed them all next year. You just need to make sure you can supply everything.
*******Yes, you are right, I will take your advise and only breed one female to start! Great idea! I won't be breeding untill I know me and my cresteds are 100% ready!!
Thakns so much for all your GREAT advise and help!!
