Default Re: T.verrucosus about to morph

Mine are real slow to morph. I've got some of last years and this years babies all still with gills playing happy familys in the adult's tank. If I raise any in smaller tanks they seem to morph once they reach about 70mm, so can only assume the deep water and steady food supply slows them down.

Default Re: T.verrucosus about to morph

I have noticed the same thing, my guys are kept in low water volume and morph around 2" but other friends who keep them in larger tanks have them morphing at a much larger size. Did you raise yours in with the adults?

Yes, I haven't had much time this season, so I left the eggs in with the adults. I guess there's about twenty big larvae in total with countless smaller ones darting about. As you say, they will eat their own eggs if they find them, but the adults seem programmed to avoid them once they hatch.

Default Re: T.verrucosus about to morph

Sounds like we're discussing different species, in fact we may be seeing as the T.verrucosus in the UK are probably a mix of atleast three "variants". I don't trust my adults an inch, larvae which hatch in the tank never make it past 1", they disapear at some point which is why I pull them whenever I see them. The adults are generally relaxed with each other till feeding time at which point they try to eat each other. Last week I had to seperate two as one had swallowed a tank mates tail up to its back legs. I know one keeper who got rid of her T.verr as she couldn't stand the level of violence lol

Default Re: T.verrucosus about to morph

First ones to morph, bit smaller than usual , averaging 1.5"-2", going to get them closer to 3" before sale. 50 a trio if anybody wants to preorder. They are terrestrial atm and will be for a few days, they will then be returned to a shallow tub full of weed and go aquatic.
