Well Saturday is tadpole/culture day. My girlfriend reminded me that I should check on the Leucs to see if they left a clutch in the hut. Well sure enough they did. She(girlfriend) then asked why the eggs are all white(white with black dot) and not black. I said "I do not know, but I will ask." So why are some clutches white and some clutch black? Thanks all!

When the eggs are recently laid, they sometimes looks half-and half white/black, or even white with a black spot on the top. They will darken up and turn grey-black for most species within a few days as they start to develop. If they stay white, become fuzzy/cloudy, or get deformed, they are most likely infertile or just duds.

Thanks, I was figuring something among those lines. This is their 26th clutch and from time to time they seem to be black or white. Again thanks

In my experience with Tincs, it seems that any eggs that have white to them inevitably go bad. I was just curious if it is different with Leucs...or... does anyone else have Tinc eggs with white that eventually turn to tads???

7 out of the 8 clutches of eggs Ive got from my vittatus in the past two monthes were black and white and never developed. The clutch they layed 5 days were half black/cream white and they turned all black the next day and are starting to develop.
