Quads require lower temps than most Chameleons !
 55 to 75 degrees F...
High humidity !.... I mean high ! You can use a ultrasonic humidifier
and these guys !  They will sit under the cloud it forms and love
every minute of it..
 They breed well and have 3 clutches a year !! Don't hold me top the
amout of eggs they will produce.. But 10 to 14 per clutch ...
4 to 5 months before they hatch...
 These guys are neat if you set them up and feed them you will be a
happy dude .. Good luck !
 Oh and one more thing ! they arent agressive like most other
Chamelons are.. You can even keep two males in the same inclouser . As
long as the plants are full in the cage... Cage size 18 x 18 x 36..
 Best of luck to you !

You're both right.  If you set them up at the same time in a large
cage , most quadricornis do well in small groups even with multiple
males (I've even had males take turns breeding females).  However once
they have been in the cage long enough to consider it their territory,
males will attack any new males added to the cage.  Also, you ned to
watch the group closely to make sure no one is getting thin.  Stress
ca nbe occuring in some individuals even though it may appear that all
are getting along.  Always pull out any thin individuals.  Likewise
females need to periodically be caged free from any males or they
stress and lose weight.  I pull the females just prior to their laying
their clutch and put them back w/ the male a few months later.  This
has worked well for several years now.   As far as overall care, I
have an article coming out in Reptiles Mag  (supposedly slated for
this summer) specifically on the captive care of quadricornis.
Hopefully it will cover the original posters questions.
