Can’t really check the broms bit difficult to look into but only been in for a couple of months haven’t seen any courting, just not sure if the one in the pic is female. Would the male only call if she was a female?

Thanks

Thanks for both your comments,

I did move them from a plastic box to a nice viv, but the male did carry on calling for about 2-3 weeks after moving them. There no aggression between them the "female" is shyer but i would spot them feeding next to each other with no issues both a good size the calling male is a bit smaller.

The viv gets misted 6 times a day for about 40 seconds and its dual vented and temp around 22C. The only difference between this once and the last viv was it had 100% humidity. I have read your care sheets John maybe they need less ventilation?



I have blocked the back vent at first to get the plants growing leave the top front open open to stop the glass misting up. Both vent are now open.



Male


Thanks
Nick

ok will keep an eye on them still early days.

It's a custom built one which I requested from fellow hobbiest builds them for us normally using a single vent. They are all made from optiwhite/low iron glass at no extra cost as standard. I requested a single door which I lift out with a glass sucker/holder.

Warm air rises which sucks cool air from the front vent which de-mists the glass, and out of the top vent, pretty standard in Europe. The dual vent allows me to control the humidity for different species by blocking the back one off or leaving it open.

Let us know when you’re visiting John and I will get you in contact with some of the guys over here, don’t forget your camera! ;)
