Having E's i would (deffinetly after getting a bigger set up) get a couple more E's as they do well with others of their kind! I would also do over 6 in. Of sub for E's. Everybody looks for E's you got very lucky!!! For a quick tip on being cheap....
-Joanns fabric sells green turbo shells (favored by pp and sometimes worn by E's) big bag for 3$
-Home Depot/Lowes sells play sand 3$ a bag ( to mix with EE for sub.
-Zoomed (Chain pet stores petco, petsmart, etc) brand heat pads are a rip off. sells ultra therms that are cheaper work better and can be insulted.

Welcome & Hope this helps!

Thanks! The temp and humidity seem fine now but I KNOW in the winter we will need heat. It gets cold here even in so cal!

So you think having two E's I should get more still? I better get a larger tank first!

I gave them tuna today since someone said they like protein!

Hi, if you haven't already I would suggest reading the care guides thoroughly.

That gives you an idea of the supplies you need and foods that are safe to feed them. This way you aren't spending a ton of money on things you can't use or are not ideal for them.
