I have a giant larvae living in an 'aqua composter' that has grown large gills and doesn't show any sign of color yet. Some of the others are developing their rough skin. I also set up a new tub as they are getting big, so I have split them into smaller groups.

Thanks Herman! I actually just saw your fb msg regarding the shanjing eggs, must have gotten buried in birthday messages on Facebook apologies!


The first few have morphed. The first one to do so I left in the larvae tub as there was a lot of cork bark for it to roam. The next morning I found it dead, it seems to have drown upon re entering the water. Now as they morph I have been removing them into a bin of cork bark with a wet paper towel bottom, and haven't lost any since (touch wood). After they left the water they developed their characteristic head ridges.

The first 2 that left water have started to eat. After doing so they became a lot more active, they were like statues before. You can tell metamorphosing is a very stressful process for them, which is likely why there can be high mortality at morph. Out of 5 to morph I have only lost 1 so far, hoping the others pull through touch wood. They pretty much look like mini adults minus the orange warts which look to be developing slowly.

Excellent job so far ,responsibility is on you now to raise the young and breed the F1/2
I lost all mine when my mother inlaw cooked them sadly,adults are still here but don't want to breed regardless of conditions
so see if you can get your juvies to grow and breed.
can I ask was the only heating on your adult tank the lighting ?

Thank you! I am hoping I can raise you a male, I think I recall you were looking for one. Yes the only heat I had was the heat lamp, which was at one end of the tank. It was warming the land portion, I figure even in the summer the water is pretty cold especially in the morning, so the water stayed about 18-19 degrees. It can be hard to warm them without warming the water too much, the larger the water volume the easier it is to keep the water temp from changing as much.

I think you might be on to something ,with the cool water and warm land,I tried mine in the garden this summer ,the water was cool but the land never got warm enough (Scottish summer) .The animals did spend a lot of time in the water part but didn't eat much and the male hasn't come into condition. Can always try again next year

I had just remembered going herping in the summer on a sweltering day, and the water was almost ice cold and it was in the sun. In those shaded areas where they are from especially during typhoon season, warm winds sweep over but would be unlikely to cause a significant water temperature increase. I think warming up the land makes the temp difference between water and land even greater, which I think is something they would be reminded of every time they enter or leave the water. I wondering how long the babies will take to mature.
