I have found that growth and development is based more on water quality and nutrition than container size when you jar/cup/card males

I use pint size canning jars and move to quart size as needed based on growth and development along with 100% daily water changes and quality nutrition.

When you are looking at housing 80 or so males in separate containers...size matters....laffs....
Heat is another issue when housing males in small container.....I am lucky....the china cabinet that I keep them in....will maintain a stable water temp in the 75-78F range regardless of season....but I try to do this in the warmer months...more because I tend to lose power in the cold months than anything else...and food...I rely on natural foods in the warmer months too....
I have been experimenting with different ways to house multi males and so far it is working out well for me....
