Breeding Seaon

Posted by Mike George at 10/14/2010 3:16:42 PM

The Breeders have been cooling since since the 25 of September. Hot side has been changed from 92 degrees 24/7 to 92 during the day (10 hours) and 84 at night (14 hours). Cool side is normally at 81 during the day but only drops to 76-77 at night. They have had natural lighting from the window to regulate day and night cycles. But at around the 10th hour I drop a blanket over them to make sure they have the 14 hour night and 10 hour day cycle.

Well I was going to start placing Iroh in with his females on the 25th of October, exactly 1 month of cooling. BUT.....a storm came in this morning and I had a good feeling about putting him in with Electra so I start off alittle eariler than I expected but hey what goes as expected, right? 

So now as I sit at work I hope Iroh and Electra are doing their thing for the first time in either of their little lives (both virgins). Fingers crossed for some Fireflys this season!!

Thanks guys!

Day 1 they were on opposite sides of the tub. haha It looked like a middle school dance floor.

Today they are cuddling (cute) but no locking yet. If they don't start bumping uglies then the next time he goes back in I think I am going to have to smear anothers boys sperm on Electras back to get him going.
