Nice one, Bobby!

I remember keeping these, tiny as babies aren't they

Congrats Bobby, how long was incubation at what temps?

Mine are producing great just they keep laying like directly in the water (underneath the potted plant I have in the cage) so it is always to late, though I have one clutch incubationg that I think is viable.

Thanks Derek

They are tiny especially when compared to the adults.They hatched out at right around 70 days with a fluctuating temp between 80-84 with a slight night time drop.

Dang, I thought incubation temps were like Rhacs, like in the 70's, I have my eggs cooking at 70-72, did you just incubate higher in hopes of males?

Thanks Derek
