I used to keep my locusts in a small tank but now I put them straight in with my BTS. Provided he doesn't gobble them all at once they do a lot better in the viv.
Lately my bluey has been in a state of brumation on and off and a whole batch made it from L4 to adult and laid eggs. But he decided to wake up, came out starving and ate them all.
So if this happens again can anyone tell me how to keep the eggs?
