My leucs are seasonal as well. Make sure your viv is fairly dry for a couple months (not a swamp) then mist twice a day for a few weeks. Also mine are "shy" they do best when put next to another viv with a species that call frequently. Can you post a pic of your viv?Im wanting to breed either my D. Auratus or D. Leuc, what would the best way to get them to start laying eggs?
I don't think you can tell right after they were laid if they were successfully fertilized or not. I think it depends on if they mold over & don't develop which could also be due to vitamin deficiencies and other things too. I noticed that the first few clutches my Santa Isabel's & Green and Bronze Auratus laid were empty jellies. The # of non empty jellies increased the second clutch and by the 3rd I may get 1 empty one. For me what you described is exactly what I experienced. It's been 6 days now and I bet in 1 more week you will find a few more hopefully with solid insides (Not sure the official name). Just keep doing what you are doing and supplement well if you aren't already. I clean my pirtri dish if it gets dirty and give it a misting.I think my female has just laid some eggs. It’s like a blob of jelly, but they don’t look fertilised. Am I right in believing males fertilise after they’ve been laid? How long should it take them to do that?
