Ok so im trying to get a plan ready for Pamona Reptile show for getting my Cobalt tincs. I plan to get a pair of them so i can get some babies. Now having that said if i get a male and female sexed sub adults are the odds of them pairing up to breed pretty high?

If this is not the case then would 2 male 1 female be a safer bet to get a pair or should i just look to get a proven pair? Is it common to find proven pairs at shows?

I dont want to get ahead of myself but i know that i would like to see them breed and i want to have the best chance of that happening when i make the final decision to get them :)

Any input would be much appreciated!
Thanks,
Micro

Depending on how old they are, they will take a bit of time to mature enough to breed. I think tincs average around 1 year to 16 months for breeding (not sure, someone correct me).

So, get your pair. If they are male and female they will likely breed when they reach maturity. If not, or if they turn out to be the same sex, you can shop for a mate.

nice! you got the pair from sam huh? they should love the 40g. Just cause they are proven doesnt mean they will automatically breed for you, but it can also be suprising how fast some can make themselves at home, i just got a proven pair of pats and withen a week I had eggs, my bakhuis took about 3 months before started getting good eggs. just given you a heads up so your not sittin next to your tank all night playing Barry Manilow..trust me it doesn't work..:p
see ya at pomona
