How soon?!  I was told he was too big for a 6 month old so wasn't expecting anything too big too soon?! My husband made the box and house for my son, Hercules was his Christmas present.  We do have a garden, yes. Its enclosed, so will be good for roaming in the future.

Update, its increased to 31 under the bulb and 19 right at the other end.  Is this ok?

 

Lamp has been in 2 hours and his energy levels have got bonkers!

What lovely enclosures and thanks for your reply.  Our new heat/uv 125w  bulb arrived today and I'm worried its not hot enough!  Its dropped to 30cm above the soil and under the spot its 29.6 degrees and at the other end its 18.  Is this ok?

 

We have another 10litres of substrate to add, so are going to water the first lot well tonight (will put him separately overnight) and then add the new on top.

Can I give him cuttlefish?  We can pick it up for free on our local beach.
