Tiffany, you have T. granulosa, not T. torosa. Yes, they can mate, but unless you're specifically cycling and providing places for them to lay eggs, they probably won't. Even if they do lay eggs, you can leave the eggs in the tank to be eaten by the parents, or remove them and cull them using alcohol.

But if you raise them you'd have no problem getting rid of the offspring. Plus, it would be good for anyone wanting CB stock of this species...which is very hard to come by it seems.
