Excited!! I have a colony of 6. Bumped up the temp, light duration, and feeding about 6 weeks ago. Hopefully I will have more than one pair. Will post Pic's when I figure out how.

The male spit the eggs in the bottom of his den and ate like normal when I fed them last night. Eggs are gone this afternoon when I got home from work.
