    So me and my boyfriend (lotsareps aka brad) have ordered a breedable trio (1.2 ratio) of yellow ackies and will be getting them this friday. the cage is being delivered tonight and will be totally ready for them when they get here. We are very excited to have new family members, especially awesome animals like ackies! I've already claimed one of the females to be named Dory and he gets the other two, probably Optimus Prime for the lone male, lol

    I've heard alot of good about them also. I've emailed back and forth with Robyn a few times. I'm hoping to still have a job next month so I can get the Ackies.

    I talked to Linda Switzer on the phone once. She seems very passionate about her reptiles.

    thanks!
    the only thing that bothers me is Dot is a lot smaller than Yacko!
    they get along well. theres no fighting but rather just a fun show with them running around.

    should i move the smallest one out until its larger? i was told its a possible trio so i don't want to put it in any harm in case that one is female

    In '93 I was 30 years old and newly married. Watching cartoons wasn't on the top of my list. ;) The X Files and The Nanny premiered that year! Now "those" were entertainment!!! :mrgreen:

    good luck with them i was thinking about getting them but changed my mind and picked up 2 baby Argus.

    It depends how big a cage there in and how many basking spots there are. If your worried about it not eating enough you can tong feed that one in particular so you know it is getting food. if they due fight it is best to separate one to avoid serious injury.
