I never get a straight answer with this. Supposedly, if you keep them happy, many kinds like tincs may lay a clutch of eggs every week. But what if you cycle your tank? I keep mine on a photoperiod that changes slightly with humidity and moisture changes seasonally. Will then they only breed once a year? What about E. tricolor? I plan to get them, and I know for sure where they are from, they experience seasons. So, would they only lay a clutch normally once a year? Is egg laying that hard on the animals? Sometimes I wonder if eggs once a week seems a bit much.
