You only have to ask and there's usually someone around to give advice.
That's some collection. I'm glad you're keeping them and hopefully enjoy watching their antics.

Yes that is quite the collection. Did you help him in the past? And will he be around to help? Seems you have a full plate with all those Ts.

Hi all yes I helped him for a year this February, I helped deal and feed the full collection and also learnt to move TS using the catch cup method the new world was ok but them old world can teleport I swear so quick but we had no escapes.
So I thought when he left home and didn't want the collection I'll take it over I've seen 85% of the collection grow in the last year and they are all so beautiful close up and so interesting to watch. I'm hoping to be able to sex most of this collection this year with help from you guy's. My future plans are to maybe breed some of these boys and girls but not till I know I can re-home the baby's.
All please be patient with me I don't know the Latin names for them but collection has been in my care for 4 weeks all doing great and the room is a lot cleaner now lol I've rehoused about 15 new world on my own so in my eyes the past year helping has do me good and I'm planning on rehousing all the old world into there final homes with the catch cup method.
