I usually wait a day after unboxing to let them settle, but some people just toss in a prey item right away. What did you get? I know fear not does complete packages with feeders included, which is pretty cool.

There really is no right or wrong answer. If you are feeding with something that is pre killed, then it will do them no harm & you should be feeding them twice a week, so they will not have long to wait for something they will eat, no matter what you choose to do.

Personally, any new T's that I get, get fed with the others. So if it's a sling, with their schedule & if it's a juvi or adult with that schedule.
