View Full Version : Gravid Amyae query???

04-27-2006, 08:53 AM
Everyone just curious if there is another way of telling if an Amyae is gravid, other than by obvious weight gain - I guess this could mean a number of different things. Is it possible to actually see an egg outline with Amyae considering how impossible it is to see through them so to speak?

Just curious if there are any technics in use.

Reason being is that my 2 yr old female seems to have stacked on the weight of late - and I guess I wanna know if she could be gravid or is she just simply over weight like my Coggeri & Castelnaui :? :?

I can usually tell by looking at my females from the side.....you can see an egg bulge in their belly.
Not very scientific though but it works :)

I agree Nicole, its hard to see the eggs...but from the side they do seem to bulge slightly...

I know Troy, one of mine just went through her pre shed lay, and I can't even tell there are eggs...makes me wonder.
