Of course that's the Dr Woods he means, and its partly because it is such a huge site that finding the article takes some time. i am not familiar with the article but have also read similar to state that a ceph can put on 25% extra mass each week while it is growing in the right conditions.

I'll have a quick scan for it later

yes I do now that they increase in lean body mass from 20%-25% of what they eat--but 40% usually applies to a ceph with a eating frenzy..not usual. :)

Little Critter Cage, Plastic Container with a lid that comes in all sizes!

I believe Pixel also lives in one for the moment. I put a small cartridge filter in to draw water from the tank into the pethome.

Very handy container to keep in ones car, just in case!!! :)
The picture below is Lil Pumpkins' new home for the moment!

My picture...

A picture of my set-up.

I am going to let Pixel out this week. I worked all weekend on getting the feeder tank set up as well as some last-minute escape-proofing.

The powerhead right above the terrarium is a MaxiJet 1200. There does not seem to be any problem with flow inside the terrarium.
