I have to say that even after having my frilleds for several years i still learn from them. I had my male go off feed for 6 months !!!!! I just KNEW he was going to die. needless to say.he didnt, and the female will go off feed for a month or two at a time too..... they are sluggish at this time as well. They are very good at regulating their metabolism.

I let all my light/ heat go out at night with the cage temps going to 68-70 degrees during the winter, but i always turn on all the heat during the day.

:Hi, I have always kept my frilleds in a 75 gal tank with a 100watt active u.v. heat bulb on one side and a 150 watt cermic heat emitter on the other. I have been reading about what every one else does which seems to me to be to let the whole cage drop to 70 at night. I have not used the 150 watt heat emitters for two weeks and the frilles are acting sluggish. Just sitting on the same branchs. Should I use it during the day and turn all heat off at night, or should I just give them more time to adjust? Thanks for you help, Jacob.
