I just checked my damaeuns lay box and I found my second clutch of eggs.The first clutch should be hatching within the next couple of weeks and I'm wondering how you guys incubate your diplos.I used a 2.1.1 perlite,vermeculite,water around 82-84.The first clutch is looking good but I'm fairly new to dips and would like some info from some of you more experianced breeders,thanks.

I do a 1:1 ratio of vermiculite to water by weight. This ratio has worked well for me for many years. If the eggs are fertile, they can tolerate a wide range of conditions.

thanks for your input I'm going to try your method on the next clutch,thanks.I'm also going to be getting some s.spinigerus soon and was planning on setting them up the same as my s.williamsi,what do you guys think?This is my second species of strophs and I want to set them up as perfect as I can.I was thinking lots of branches and some cork bark slabs,sound good.Thanks for you advice,BOBBY
