Didn't think my azureus were mature, they were very tiny when I got them last July. But when I was doing some pruning yesterday I peeked under the hut and was surprised to find these eggs :eek: they seem to look OK (judging from some bad eggs my terribilis produced) any thoughts ? I was thinking the first spawns were typically duds.

The one on the far left looks a little weird, but it's probably just the picture or something.
yes that far left one is starting to get a little funky, seems like if they are not nice & black they go south

First spawns do not have to be funky... part of that may have been due the issues with supplements or other factors.

I thought I would post an update, tinc pics are as common as sliced bread but I'm still stoked as these are the first azureus tads for me:D only two of the eggs shown in previous photos made it to tadhood;) one has been out of water a few days the other just came out today.
I have tads in cups from later spawns but none close to coming out of the water.

Congratulations! Cute lil guys!

I'm amazed at the color...yours are a really light blue. Are the parents light like that? I know just a short while ago, I saw Patrick at Saurian had what he called a "white" Azureus for sale...it was very unusual...and pretty...and expensive!

My azureus come out a really deep blue...but the parents are like that. That's why I picked them. I wanted the darkest brightest blue I could find with lots of black spotting. I was trying to get as close to "natural" as I could. :)

thanks everyone, Wendy the parents are normal blue, I think this froglet may look lighter as it had just come out of the water & still had a tail stub. It is darker blue now.

I think that's one thing that never get's old. I've had darts for around 8 years now and have raised hundreds of tads and I still get excited during all the stages of developement. Congrats.
