    Hi shela, if it is that bad that you never see them, try to remove some off the clutter, after all they are a pair so aggresstion should be nearly nothing :good:

    Mine eat out my fingers.....can feel their small teeth. They are not shy at all. When i walk in the room they all rush towards me....quite cute. One of them is very terotorial and attacks the others. Some have a few bite marks. Is this normal at this age? One is also alot smaller than the others.

    yes unfortuanutly they are aggrssive to a point, mine also have a few scaping mark's but nothing serious, i have 9 left in with the parent's 6 are all the same size and then ones abit smaller then two are so small, but as long as you have lots of hidey holes should be ok for a while yet, how are you mike? It could and probally get worse once they start to pair of so remember be prepared, but as of yet iam not worried with mine yet

    There's about 10 left, darn i wish i could send them to you, but think it would be too much hassle, sorry.....

    They have reached there aggressive point now so iam thinking quick on what to do, might spead them around abit, unless i can get hold of another tank quick, i know of a 4ft/2ft going free from my mate but has a huge vieja bifa<my ole girl>shes pure evil,hehe so may get that and rehome her again..
