I keep the crickets in a 20 gallon plastic container outside. I order 1000 at a time which costs around $18 or so and lasts a few weeks. They are not noisy at night unless you get adult crickets but either way, living in FL you could keep them outside year round. Hatchling BD are much easier to raise than Uromastyx. They generally acclimate very quickly. They also grow much faster, reaching their full length in about a year and full size in about 18 months. Any other questions?
