Near and Middle Eastern Newts (Neurergus) Arguably the most beautiful newts in the world, this Asian genus is highly desired by many hobbyists.

Default Strauchii larvae are hatching

My strauchii have produced viable eggs for the first time, and they are now hatching. I got the adults from Jennewt a few years back; they were young newts then, just reaching adulthood.

While the females laid eggs every year, they have always been unfertilized, suggesting that the boys needed a bit more time growing up maybe..

interestingly, in previous years I always cooled them down in the storage room prior to egg laying, but this year I didn't do that and left them in their main tank, which was at ca. 62 F at the time they laid the eggs.

So anyways, here I am with my first strauchii larvae. I have about 30 viable eggs. Eggs are 2 different ages, suggesting 2 laying events, maybe 2 different females. I have no daphnia at the time, so I'll attempt to raise them starting with tiny chopped blackworms, at least until I can order a Daphnia culture somewhere..

Those of you who have raised strauchii, any advice on what might be different as compared to raising other species?

Congrats Molch! I know this a been a while coming for you, I remember seeing older posts about how they weren't successfully breeding. Good to hear it was successful this time around. Now have fun raising those larvae, and good luck!

Default Re: Strauchii larvae are hatching

thanks all - yeah, I haven't been posting lately, mainly because I get bored with the internet, not with the newts :) All my newts are fine. I have the larvae in a simple setup and am trying to start them on chopped blackworms and brine shrimp. We'll see how it goes...
cheers

Hi all,
quick update: The remaining larvae thrived and have now all morphed in to 16 fat, shiny little spotted newtlets. They look great and eat everything that's not nailed down. I should take pics and post those in a few days!
