I am just wondering if everyone cycles their frogs in any way to get them to start laying? Our vents have laid a few eggs before and from what everyone says they should have just gone to town laying by now. We got the eggs probably three months ago and have seen nothing since. I have tried spraying them a lot, even flooding the tank, and nothing. On another note our intermedius have been calling for months! The female is pretty big, but still nothing coming from them either. Mike thought that he had read before that (for thumbs anyway) you should remove all broms, canisters, and water and stop spraying them for three weeks. Then you should have egg laying when you start them up again. Is this helpful or useless? If I do try this, will they eat less during this time or should I continue feeding regularly? Thanks for any insight.

No one has any input on this? I just don't understand my vents. Everyone says that once they lay one clutch...watch out!! That couldn't be more false in my case. I got a couple clutches, five then seven eggs. Now nothing. I just don't know what I am doing wrong. Please help.

Yes I do believe that cycling frogs helps in breeding . Think about it like this in the wild the weather is not always the same all year . You have weather fronts that move through , high ,low pressure fronts rain no rain ect..
Our frogs are not supposed to have 100% ideal conditions 365 days a year .
Frogs have many different keys that set them off in the wild that tell them to breed . Alot of which have been covered throughly here . Some of us believe that a certian amount of "stress" and I use that term lightly, is a good thing . Another key is giving them a break from production , not only is that good for the frogs but Ibelieve that the quality of clutches goes down after a long period of egg laying .
That could atribute to the lack of stored vitamins and other factors of overextended production .
You just need to find what the keys are to unlock the code for the reproductive needs of your frogs . Also every frog is different what works for me and him won't always work for you .
That is where the fun part comes in and where the phrase "working with " comes to mind .
Good luck .
