Nice to see them doing so well! Those 5 are getting an early start. Some of their siblings that I held onto still have full gills and larval coloration.

Looks like they are maturing nicely, maybe you'll have eggs next breeding season. :)

They sure are. I've got 2 sure males, and 2 sure females, the last one, which is the one in the last picture I think is a male. That picture is actually from maybe a week or two ago. Since then, its cloaca has gotten a tad bit more prominent and the orange stripe on its back seems to have become a bit raised. Not sure, especially because its color doesn't seem to match the other two males, but if I'm right I've got my ideal 3:2 M:F ratio!

They are really coming along! Its great to see updates like these. I ended up keeping 4 siblings of your group's and they are all still gilled and absolutely huge. I am thinking they may end up being neotenic.

Would love to see them. How big are they? Are they developing adult coloration?

Couple recent pics, one of the other males is cresting up now.

One of the females is laying eggs now. Super small compared to the hypselotriton eggs I'm used to, not sure if that's species specific or just because this female is so young. Whether they turn out to be viable or not, happy to see it.

They're beautiful! My female is huge and the males are just starting to crest up. I love this species, they're so easy to keep and you really can't beat the males in the breeding season for eye popping colours!

Would love to see how yours are looking this year. In your experience, do they change much in appearance after the first year?

That male on top has been courting the females almost nonstop since around January. He maybe took a break for a couple weeks. Now that this other brownish male is maturing, I feel sorry for the females, they're so relentless.

At least you've seen the eggs. My apuanas are laying for the second time in the past 4 months and I still haven't actually seen the eggs. A few of the eggs hatched and now the larvae are close to metamorphosing and at the same time I just found a few new little larvae in with the parents. These really are a fun species to keep. I've had them for a little less than a year, but it has been great watching the changes and growth in that time.
