That scale I have has done me well...I love it.

Yeah. My scale great.

Hey Ken...Can you explain how you incubate your amyae eggs? What incubation medium do you use? What is the medium/water ratio? Incubation temp? Are these guys temp sexable?

Thats the one I told you about Mike?

Should be fine, you can always calibrate it Mike.

I don't think they are temp sexable Chris, I have mine in a vermiculite/perlite medium. As for water ratio...honestly I just spray the top of the lids and thats it. And I had mine at 85-86 last year, I am going lower this year, right around 80-81.

Wow!!! HUGE!!!!! She surely has to be gravid!!

I wouldn't want to be bitten by anything that size LOL!

It's being thrown around here that lower incubation temps for Amyae produce more females. but I haven't been shown any evidence to actually prove that. Just heresay.

2 are about to lay...soon...

I don't think the one other is going to be fertile, I didn't see them mate, but I had males in there...so...

Fingers crossed. He probably had his wicked way with her when you weren't looking! I've only ever caught my gex in the act once, and I have a fair few eggs now. They don't like an audience I guess, hehehe!
