    Well if your heating up the whole cage, no more than high 70s..

    It's best to get a heat lamp (wide cages are good) and keep one side around 85 the other 75. But if you can't just keep it around 77.

    That's OK... Nothing bad, but not great.

    Here, she's right. Reading this would be a great idea.

    She should shed in the next dew days. Leave her alone until she does.

    They will do just fine alone, but can live together.

    My adult is alone, but my three babies are together. I think it's important for babies, but adults do just fine alone.
