    Default Newbie here, This is my collection.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I have had 1 Leo for 8 years, then got a female to go with him a year ago which has mated with my male. Recently i have gotten really into them and in the past few weeks my collection has grew from 2 to 7.

    2 of them are rescues which were not being looked after at all and bought another 2 males a few days ago so i now have 4 females and 3 males.

    I think i know what morphs they are but if i am wrong please enlighten me as im no expert.

    #1 is one of the resues. She is
    The worst of the 2, very skinny and despite apparently being over 2 years old she is no bigger than a 6 month old leo. We had to hand feed her for the first few days as she seemed to not know how to eat. Now she is eatong like a champ. I believe she is a rainwater albino but not sure??

    #2 is the second of the rescues. She is in better condition, liittle bigger and a lot fatter. She lost her tail and because she wasnt being fed properly, it was wasnt growing back and was black on the tip. Now it is getting more colour to it and morr of a point so clearly they are on the road to recoverg thank god. I think she is also a rainwater albino but again, not sure???

    #3 is one of the new males i bought a few days ago which is around a year old. Im certain he is a Super Hypo Tangerine.

    #4 is my pregnant female. She is about a year and a half old and recently laid her first ever clutch. I mated her with my common male.

    #5 is my biggest female. She is just over a year old but is massive, nearly the size of my 8 year old male. She is a Super Hypo Baldy Tangerine i believe??? She will be the next to be mated but as im just starting out breeding i dont want to end up with too many eggs until i get a bit more experience.

    #6 is the big boy male. He is an 8 year old common who recently had his end away for the first time and thinks he is the boyo ever since. Has anyone noticed behavior change in males since mating?? He seems to come out constantly looking for a female.

    #7 is the other new male and my personal favourite. He is also around a year old and i was told he is a Blizzard murphy patternless (he looks brown in the pic but is pure grey) He is so placid, comes to the tank door and climbs onto your hand.

    I recently finished building this multi tank vivarium from a bookcase. Cost a bit but definitely worth doing so theyre all in the same spot and not vivariums all.over the place. 1 heat cable runs through the whole thing using a pulse porportional thermostat.

    I'd agree that #1 is a rainwater albino. I can't really say for the rest because I'm not an expert but those are nice pics.

    Wow the bookcase setup is awesome very smart move there. I'm sure those rescues will be back in shape in no time.

    well #2 is pretty mich exactly the same just lighter in colour. Its harder to see the brown stripes.

    Thanks, i could probably get better pics but just rushed then while i was feeding them. I always get every one out seperately and handle them.

    Well i cant take the credit. I saw someone selling one on one of the marketplaces and though "im doing that!"

    If youre interested this is what it cost:

    Bookcase 10
    Vivexotic glass and runners 130
    16m heat cable 38
    600w pulse porportional thermostat 36 (i thought i had a 300w one, maybe ordered the wrong one. As long as its above 150w as the heat cable is 150w)
    Foil tape 5
    Vents 3

    Say 230. But it is well worth it. I have sold aome of my vivs to make money back but keeping some for babies.
