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.

My pair of azureus and vents lay almost 2 clutches a week. This won't last all year though. They will go through slow peiods and then start breeding more often again. Tricolors, on the other hand, are supposedly seasonal breeders. I have heard of many people that had them though and got rid of them because they laid too many eggs for them to take care of. I haven't bred them though, so I can't tell you first-hand.
