:Sorry I just checked my records. My male is the one who was 32g. my female is a tiny 20g.
:I am going to get a fecal done, maybe she has something. I did have one not to long ago and she was clear, but I do another one.
:I really hope see grows.

A 20 gram female is way to small. I'd give her at least 3-4 months yet. Make sure she's at least 30-35 grams and is in perfect health. She shouldn't have a thin appearance. Strong, robust looking females make the best breeders. The longer you let a female mature, the less chance of egg- binding. Good luck with her.

::See my female is 6.5" and weights 30g., but she is only 8 months.
::I don't think I will breed her even at 14 -18 months because she is so tiny. Unless for some strange reason she grows.
::What do you think??
::Thanks
