leave them. you have to, if you remove them you run a huge risk of breaking them.i think night day fluctuations are alright, but further i do not know.

Never worked with gluers before - Sorry buddy

Id put a deli cup over them, taped with air holes of course, and incubate in that. If it's in the corner of the glass, id say keep an eye on them.

yeah, that's what i've heard from people too.

Leave them. Incubation might take a little longer, but they will hatch like that.

I don't even put a deli cup over them, if they are good eggs they will not be eaten. As long as they are well fed, usualy the parents will leave offspring alone for a day or two after they hatch. Good luck.

Do i have to worry about them being wet?Or will the do ok with the usuallu misting getting on them?

I had some l. lugubris eat some eggs once, hasnt happened much after that though.

I wouldn't have the mister right on them, but it shouldn't be a big deal as long as they are never soaked.

Haha, yeah P. dubia are gluers. Thought you knew? Anyway, just let them be. I hear P. dubia are more peaceful towards the offspring than other species (my P. ornata bit the legs of a few of their young when I kept them). If you're concerned you could put a small deli cup over them around day 40. I hope my trio starts laying soon.

I knew they were gluers.But i was just hopeing it would be on one of the leaves.So i could cut it and incubate it.
