Default Leuc breeding

How do you guys breed your leucs. I have a group of 8. I haven't been really paying attention to them lately as my frog time is quite limited now, but they're calling up a storm. I picked off a few batches of eggs from them before when they layed them on a leaf, but I really haven't placed any breeding props for them.

do you guys just do the standard, petrie dish with a coco hut over it or do you have some special love equipment for them?

just curious

marty with a group of 8 you might be running into female egg eating. i had a group of 6 and had the same problem. what i did is i took all the males and 1 female and put them into a tank i still had the nice calling and egss all the time. you usually run larger tanks so you might get away with 2 females and as many males as you see fit!

And mine preferred black film containers on the floor, over the coco hut, although they did use both.

Mist Mist Mist :wink:

and you'll have plenty of eggs

they seemed to do it just fine without the crisco. Keep the sides MISTED (Ok I'm killin myself )

The containers were in there from when the trio was younger as hiding spots, so maybe that made the difference. I had 1.2 and didnt see any egg eating. I usually let the eggs develop in the tank for the first 7 days, and pulled them after.

To get them out, I usually just wet the eggs well, and shake them out onto a petri dish. A fingernail or the back of a spoon to scrape off any remaining eggs if they are stuck. No troubles.

I offer both in my tank too. They have laid in both.

I have found that overall, more damage happens to eggs when you try to get them out of film canisters. What I do, is take the entire film canister out of the tank. Place it in a 16oz container with some ventilation holes (I also put a lid on it after I am done with everything to prevent total dry out.) and use some wet sphagnum on the bottom to position the film canister in a similar position that it was in the tank.

Then I mist the heck out of the container, put the lid on and let them sit. When the eggs are getting close to hatching, I use my finger or water from a sprayer to dislodge them. I remove the sphagnum from the bottom and deposit the eggs into the bottom of the 16 oz container.

Thanks for the replies. I'm not sure if my females can sqeeze their butts into the film canisters, hehe. I haven't thought of them eating their eggs. I'll keep en eye out for that. I'll set few canisters and 2 coco huts with petire dishes and see what happens. For now, I'll leave them as a group, if they start eating eggs, I'll have to seperate them - I have few spare tanks, in the rack, so it should work out OK.

u can cut the canister into two pieces, and put one in the bottom side of
a regular canister. when u got the eggs, just pull the half one out and
replace another one immediately. i didnt remove the eggs and i just
put the canister with eggs into another plastic box and add few aged
water to wait the tads hatch.
