I ordered cherry tart something...

Rocky came out for a little bit and joined me as I glimpsed over the mail in the office....invoices! I am not sure why as he does not have money.
Anyways, I noticed one thigh looked a little bigger. I touched him, no pain- he did move away from me to go to sleep. He walks/runs fine but I went down the gout route.
What is wrong with me...well it's been awhile so here I am.
It says babies wouldn't make it and adults, take to the vet. Well, he's brumating- in his own way- no signs of pain, he can walk (I was about to say talk, lol)- and run. Now he's puffy all over when he semibrumates so I probably need to stop but I think ordering this item will make me feel better.
He didn't want water but I am sure he ate more bugs than salad at times so the ratio was off.
This is why I am watching Ruby carefully....also Ruby ate crickets whereas Rocky is definitely a dubia baby.

Both are hydrated. OMG the poo Ruby left for me yesterday, I walked into the room and thought something died. He decided to cook it under the basking light again. Thanks Ruby.

Well, I will keep you posted but in the meantime, I will continue to monitor Rocky when he's up. leg.jpg I tried to get a shot yesterday but go figure, it's the other leg. He was fighting his brumation at this point but wanted to see the world to make sure nothing has changed. I didn't put him there, he went himself for only 5 minutes.

Your great with them, i doubt he has gout, but monitor him for sure. Gout is most problematic when the dubias are giving a high protein diet. If you feed them premix, make sure it's low protein.

I agree with xp29. If Rocky likes Dubias then you should keep them on a diet of greens and vegetables. As far as I know, uric acid can remain in the body of a roach for several weeks, so the best option was to have your own colony, because no one knows what the store fed the dubias. Foxy also likes roaches very much, so I have to maintain a colony and breed them.
For me, it is much more difficult to maintain the proportion of calcium and phosphorus, it seems to me that Foxy endures and waits until he gets dubias and does not eat his vegetables. Do you have any problems with this?

Yes. I tried the breeding- it was fine for a minute but I buy dubias and it sits.
I need more veggie ideas because he is so not into them. I can get him to eat cucumbers and carrots every now and then but I am open.
I also tried raphrashy...it was a no go.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
