I put them aquatic and leave them aquatic until either they lay eggs or they've been in there for 2 days, which ever comes first. If they don't lay within those 2 days then I put them back terrestrial and then try again in 2 or 3 weeks.

Did you happen to get any more pics of the little guys during growth? Like Larva development and all that stages of it.. the growth of their feet that sort of thing?

Once the eggs were laid did you keep the water at a cool temperature for any amount of time or allow it to warm. If so what was the approximate final temperature (at hatching)?

I too, would like to know this, if I ever can find a male A. Maculatum, I would really love to breed them, and just ambystomatids in general.
+1 to the bringing more CB animals into the hobby as well, makes me feel so great that people are and can do this.

Very cool. I recently found and collected an amelanistic one (very nice specimen, very clean look) and have been theorizing with the guys at work about how to captive breed it out. Thanks for presenting a possible way!

Wow thats awesome! congradulations. I have been thinking about starting to breed my spotted sallies. When you put them in the 20gal tank do you give them any land or is it a fully aquatic tank.

Eggs were kept at temperatures ranging from 7-10'c.

Hi Justin,

Can you give me an idea of how fast your critters grow? How big are they now? (length)
The ones we have here were hatched this past spring. I'm letting the self feed on small bugs - mostly pillbugs and tiny worms. There are too many to hand feed. They
have nice round bellies but I have no reference for healthy growth rates.
