Today I came home to discover my Blue auratus had layed a clutch of 8 eggs! :D
Here's a quick iPhone pic of them:



I haven't pulled them out of the viv yet to make sure they've been fertilized. How do they look?

it's hard to tell how they look in that pic. Congrats! My blue/black auratus laid 10 clutches last summer, and yet I saw (and heard) the male calling for the first time ever twice this week.

You'll know if they go bad. It's really obvious if they mold over. If they don't mold, by day 4 or so you will start to see development of a tad. I also always leave them in for 24 hours to make sure the male does his job.

It's hard to tell from the pics but there is water in the dish - just enough to half-way submerge them. Added some tadpole tea yesterday too. Whoa, I didn't know that some can hatch early like that - Thanks for the tip, I'll keep an eye out for that! ;)

Cute tads and beautiful mommies/daddies! :)

I'm hoping to start with breeding azureus by getting my father a sexed pair for Father's Day. I can't wait til I can see them grow up into little froglets! :D

Thanks everybody!! I really appreciate all the complements! :D

funny, mine are almost exactly the same age, look just like that, first one broke out today :)
Awesome! A few hours ago my first one broke out! Then 2 more, and now I'm waiting on the other 4. I wish I could stay up all night waiting for them!
I'll be posting some more pics soon!!

I've got tadpoles!!!
All 7 have hatched and are now living in their tadpole containers. The other 4 finally broke out tonight, just a few hours ago. They're all looking good so far! :D
