    I have the 80 watt DHP.

    Thank you for the video instructions, he is still healing from where the abscesses were and is still not the happiest when outside of his terrarium so once I get a good video of him walking around I will upload it. I understand.

    His excrement still is not completely solid but a lot better than the other day, the urate I can see looks a very healthy white. Welcome news!

    He normally does spend some time each day and sometimes at night under the DHP. How often do you see Twitch hanging out underneath his Arcadia ShadeDweller UVB? The more he's getting UVB the less he'll probably need supplemental D3.

    I don’t think he is still growing, but he could be.
    Yes the ~15" x 17" is the warm side with the DHP and shade dweller light.
    He is in his basking area at least once every other day to sometimes every day sometimes multiple times.

    The carnivore care finally arrived the other day and Twitch loves it way more than the baby food. Hooray! Is that actually Oxbow's Critical Care? I heard that Carnivore Care was discontinued a couple years ago.

    I haven’t tried a clear glass dish, are you thinking to try to get him more interested in his food? Do you have any you can recommend? Maybe if the bugs or worms are contained rather than free-roaming, they would be easier for Twitch to catch. I always amputate both back legs of the crickets right below the knees. Then, after lightly dusting with a supplement powder (or not), I place them in the dish. My adult leo @ 9.5 inches long uses a slanted rock up to the lip of her 8 ounce bowl. She quickly figures out how to get her crickets.

    These 8 ounce, clear glass dishes are Anchor brand storage bowls. They are sold in 4-packs by Walmart and maybe Amazon.

    Walmart carries these clear glass tealight holders.

    I am going to do further research on mealworm breeding. Good news! Some keepers breed mealworms in 7 quart Sterilite tubs.

    I am wanting to build some custom hides/ramps/basking areas and other features for his terrarium, kind of like this: Huge DIY Reptile Cave | Step By Step! - YouTube

    My leo uses this for her warm DRY hide.

    She uses the large OMEM terra cotta hide for her HUMID hide from Amazon. Terra cotta is superior, because it "breathes".

    I don’t want anything permanently attached to his terrarium because I still want the ability to take everything out and clean/sanitize everything and rearrange when needed.
    Do you have any other guides, videos, or pictures you can recommend? Also maybe best/safest materials (paint, sealant, glue)

    Amazon still has the oxbow critical care here: Amazon.com
    (they also have a large bag) the bag I got doesn't expire until next year so as far as I can tell they are still making it.

    I'll see if I can get those bowls or something similar nearby. Thank you!
    He has a similar warm dry hide already, and a plastic humid hide with wet paper towel. I'm currently working on how I want to arrange/design all of the DIY hides/structures and such. Once I have some actual progress I'll upload it on my DIY post.

    (they also have a large bag) the bag I got doesn't expire until next year so as far as I can tell they are still making it. Is that expiration date "PRIOR TO opening or AFTER opening"? IF AFTER opening, Critical Care MUST contain preservatives??? Did you see my link regarding freezing Carnivore Care within 7 days of opening?

    I haven't fully changed llnk 34, because I haven't found out how Critical Care differs from the former Carnivore Care.
