Default Breeding Leuc's

I have planted my viv so much I would have to really disturb it to get to the hides to look for eggs. If I just leave them to it, will they bring tadpoles down to the water area? I can't find any info on their breeding behaviour.
Do Luec's carry tad's on their backs?

Yes, they will carry the tads on their back. How big is your water area? My leucs (if I leave the eggs in) will only deposit 2 or 3 tads into the pond area. For the rest I put little cups with water in their tank. When they have had cluthes that I didn't know about I have even seen them put tads in a big brom thats in the tank (but they never make it). Can you rearrange the hides at all to get at them easier? In my experience the tads you take out morph out bigger than the ones you leave in. Hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply. I have hides all over but they really like the ones right at the back in the places I cant really get to without disturbing everything. Well I can, but don't want to keep pulling everything apart.
My water area is about 6" x 4" only 1" deep. Filtered by the constant water fall slowly flowing into it. I can raise tads in another viv when the time comes.
I am being pretty optomistic I spose as I haven't had them long, but just wondered what others do especially as when everything grows I will find the hides even more hard to reach.

I have just noticed one of my Luecs being quite round and much more plump than she was a week ago. I asume it is a she as I have never heard her call only the one I know is a male.
Do they get fat before laying?
Also I notice the male one is often on his own and the two girls (I think) often together and feed together.

yes the females will get gravid with eggs before they lay, but its much more prominent in the thumbnails, and pumilio, and less noticeable in the tinc group.
if they are still young it could be just extra weight that the frogs will put on as they mature.
