    I've heard (but. Ever actually looked up) that foggers can create respitory issues. What did you do diet wise?

    I picked up a pair last Saturday and a local rep expo, and I haven't had any luck getting them to eat yet. I figure that it will take them some time to adjust but it's going on a week since they've eaten. Anyone had any tips or tricks you guys used to get them to eat? Did you feed then in their enclosure or take them out into a separate structure like you would with a snake?

    Hi - I know you were posing your question to someone else, but I just wanted to let you know that the male and female skink pair we have live in a 40-gallon terrarium with a screen lid. We have a cake pan filled with red river rocks so it's not too deep when they swim, plus we have a pond filter in it that creates a constant waterfall to circulate the water. They swim several times a day, then we have several hides in there for them, which they like. They climb on those and sometimes climb on the big bendy vine we have in there too.
