Separated viv first to let them see eachother for a day and night then introduced them. No probs what so ever!
Like I said they do everything together now...
Wouldn't split them up now. I know someone who keeps three tigether in a rub.. No probs..
So you didn't quarentine the female before adding her to the males viv?

You know they will breed right?

You can use the bulb but if it's a heat bulb and not a ceramic you will need a different stat. You'll also need a gaurd. How big is the vivarium?

Or

You can use the heatmat (It should cover 1/3 of the vivarium) it goes under the substrate and will work fine on a pulse stat


I know you say you don't want to seperate them but tbh if you needed to ask this question I wouldn't advise breeding until you have more experience. And yes they will breed if you keep them together. Plus you will have to seperate them when the female gets pregnant anyway..

Default Heat source

Been told to not have heat mat inside viv.
As for babies my friend would sort it for me as he's bred for years..
Microclimate dimmer with a 60 watt red bulb..
Been told not to use heat mat with it.. It's a magic eye sensor

As said above your gonna have to separate them when the female is gravid
regarding them going in together after buying separate I hope one of them isn't sick mate or got parasites if one is your vet/treatment bill is gonna be x2
and they would have to be separated strait away then because of reinfection

Not having ago mate just you should always quarantine any animals your adding to a community not just in snakes.
