Well, what about light?

8 days and nothing? Hmm...I would just wait a little longer. Beppo is right, they'll strut their stuff.

Eight days isn't too long to wait for fruiting after birthing.  After two weeks you can start worrying :laugh:

Is the humidity good? With an air pump on 24/7 humidity might be the problem.

well they dont know about the humidity cuase they dont got a gage , the pump is a small pump they think its rated at like 15 gallons or so

they say the sides of the aqurium have condesation on them so it must have a pretty high humidity

You can get a temp./hum. guage at wal-mart for like $8. And btw today a 14 day old casing gave birth to its first pin. I was sweatin it. Talk about a relief. Give'em a few more days they'll be alright. Leave your pump on 24/7 & maybe fan 2or3 times a day. They'll be alright.

You didn't say if you cold shocked/dunked them?

The condensation doesn't mean the humidity is high enough or not.
If you lower your face to cake level it should smell like a rainy day. My friend doesn't have automation and mists & fans heavily 6 to 10 times a day.

Diffused sunlight is best if possible.

if unsure just get yourself a spray bottle and some h202, mist inside couple sprays a day should keep it 90 or so, give it like 3 sprays twice a day should keep it 100rh

--"The condensation doesn't mean the humidity is high enough or not. "

Uh, yeah it does, if theres condensation all over the walls and under the lid, theres plenty of humidity.

do you have an update crayon?

If you set a glass of ice water down in a warm room, does the condensation on the outside of the glass tell you that the RH is above 90% in that room?

The temperature change is what makes moisture cling, or not, to the inside of a terrarium. If the temperature in the terrarium is the same as outside, that can be one indicator of moisture presence.

8 days is not long at all, many people have waited two weeks, just keep optimum parameters, fan and mist and you'll be fine!
