    I assume they are babies.

    I would just house the babies in a 15 qt sterilite bin, with a paper towel bottom, and a wad of paper towel over the warm side (about 80-82 degrees)

    Then have a shallow water dish on the cool side along with the food dish.

    I suppose cork would work, just said paper towel as its cheap. The above setup is how a friend of mine raises his leachianus babies, and his grow much faster than most other peoples.

    Thanks Derek

    Any possibilities of a picture of a setup like this Derek? I would be interested in seeing one of these setups. Your post got the wheels turning in my head and a picture might help a bit.

    I will work on getting a picture up, like I said it is a friends setup, but I have all the stuff to replicate it. Hopefully get it up in a day or so, whenever I get a chance between the reptiles and school

    No rush, I am just curious as to how this setup looks since you said it works well for them.

    Thanks

    It is truly an upside-down world we live in where lies are truths, criminals are our nationsí leaders, and Satanís minions are considered men of God.

    If it makes them grow better I would rather see how he has them setup than guess. I'm not sure about all this warm side stuff or wad of paper towels etc. I would just like to see an example of the setup. Not really that big of a deal I didn't think.

    Yeah me too, I can't understand how crumpled PT could be better than a couple cork slabs. But I don't have any leachies either.
