    Hi I have 4 adult Indian stick insects about a year old. I kept some eggs. I have 10 nymphs 2 from eggs from january and the other 8 hatching at different times. The nymphs are currently in my tall nano tank. I am going to put the oldest in with the adults who are in a 30x30x60 Zoo ped? Cant remember what it's called. Anyway I would like to know how many sub adults could I comfortably keep in the big enclosure without over crowding. I hope someone can advise me. Thanks in advance

    Hi AnneMarie Thomson, I'd recommend no more than 20 adult Indian stick insects in your enclosure because it is important not to overcrowd them.
