Ok, i have had a pair of G&B Auratus for about a year and a half, and they havent bred yet, they basically grew up together in the tank they are in now. Should i try seperation to help stimulate breeding? Or what would be the best way to encourage it?

Thanks
Ryan

Provided they are old enough, I would suggest an old technique we used to do. You generally dry them out a bit more than normal and reduce feed a bit (make sure you are already feeding enough-- many new people cut food too much and get even skinnier frogs). We used to do that for a few weeks (note you still do feed and spray, just not nearly as much-- also make sure you still have a water bowl or something to ensure they still can hydrate) and then soak them thoroughly and feed them more than they can eat. This usually works. Also, keep in mind opening the windows prior and during part of a thunderstorm will work wonders for them. If all of the above fails I hear that the Justin Timberlake cd gets all kinds of females receptive. Just a few options...

Based on Stan's talk at IAD, I think Barry White might be the better choice!

During his talk, he reportded findings suggesting female frogs are more attracted to a male with a deeper voice. Awesome talk.

I tried getting frisky with my wife in the frog room. A little see and do!
I now have four good looking eggs from my yellow back tincs. No action(from the frogs) since then so I'll have to coax my wife to the frog room again. :wink:

Hi,
Like Justin said mine went crazy last week. We hadn't had rain for weeks and a big thunderstorm complex moved in and I watched them get funky.I have a 2.2 in their tank and the males were wrestling and so were the females.I didn't get any eggs for some reason but it was fun watching their activity.You can try overfeeding them too.It worked Way too good for me last summer/fall.
