M/F ratio for Hissers

Recommended Posts

Whats a good male/female ratio to start a colony? Can you have one male to 5 or more females or would more males help promote the desire for mating more frequently? Someone was telling me since they do well in colonies it helps to have a few males and breed in a colony rather than a pair or with a sngle male and a group of females.

I am also curious about the answer to this question, as I currently have 4 male, 4 female adult in my starter colony. I want to adjust future generations to have an "ideal" ratio. The other males can be used as a bachelor display group in my classroom.
