i made a topic the other day about a leo set up and Emz118 i think said i would need to give them 2 month quarantine before putting the together. I wouldn't need to give them quarantine if there all bred in the uk would I.?

2 months may be a bit long but 5/6 weeks is recommended..unless you know for sure 100% they are from a reputable source. last thing you want is for them to have something and pass it on to anyone else...is a very sad and costly mistake to make.

Quarantine is always a good thing - you never know what the new one may bring in. Whenever I have a new reptile it goes into its separate room for a solid 3 months - some big BP breeders even have separate buildings.

So if i get my set up of leos (which i will) i will have to put them in quarantine, ok. If i bought all gecks at da same time would i have to put them all in 4 vivs with 4 heatmats. and four of evrything??

If they are already in the same viv you don't need to separate them all.. no point they've been together already! If they are coming from 2 different places you'll need 2 viv etc etc

you would probably be ok in all fairness if they are from the same shop.... but i was under the impression you already had one and was introducing them to that???
