I have a pair of vanzo's that layed eggs on some leaf litter at the bottom of the viv and I just wanted to know if that is normal. I have never seen this before and was trying to understand why this would happen when they have so many other places to lay.

Yes this is normal. Usually if they have other options they might pick to lay in film canisters or something, but choosing to lay on leaf litter is perfectly normal also.

My Vanzos have plenty of film canisters and many different levels and angles, both with and without water. There are broad leafed plants in abundance. Still, they insist on laying in the leaf litter. So do my Green Highland Lamasi. Perfectly normal. Instead of pulling eggs, I simply pull the tads as the eggs are usually hidden down in the litter where I can't find them.

I also have filled and empty canisters with more then enough leaf area to lay. When you pull the tads do you look in each brom? or do you pull them just before they break through the eggs. I would think looking in each brom would disturb the tank alot but what do i know... Thank you for the replys

I do not use broms to make egg and tad pulling easier.
