Question Could someone share their Thamnophis marcianus care "overview"?

Hi all,

Could someone share the tank set up and or general care they give to their captive Thamnophis marcianus? Also, if possible, could you share photo's of the cage and your specimen(s)? Lastly, do you believe Thamnophis marcianus should be consuming F/T rodents only or do you believe in a "varied diet"? If you believe in a "varied diet", could you please tell me what prey items you use? Also, the ratio/rotation of the prey item in the overall "feeding plain"?

Thanks for your time and looking.

I feed rodents only and keep them in 28qt tubs with a medium-sized water bowl a hide and fake plants. Humidity is 50-65 and temps are 75-88f.

There's a link to the caresheet. If your not a member join. There's a lot of knowledgeable keepers/breeders on there.

Thanks so much for that information. My only question, from the above information is this: any idea what that translates into when it comes to tank and or vivarium size?

The picture's of your male and female Granite mutation Thamnophis marcianus are amazing. I will hopefully be acquiring a albino male in the next two weeks. What other colour mutations do you breed?

I just printed out your care sheet. I will also join that forum/group you recommend.

Lastly, what substrate(s) do you use/recommend?

Thanks so much for your time and prompt response!

20-30 gallon tanks. 20 long is minimum for a pair.
I breed pastel, super pastel, granite/pastel granite, albino, albino granite. Thats all the morphs there are in the hobby right now.
I use aspen. I buy my bedding from Wal-Mart. They are a more southern species so are more tolerant to the upper end of temps. You should put a hide on the warm and cool side so they can thermo-regulate

Wow, you have quite the collection. When you have time, I would love to see photo's of the other morphs.
