Default My axolotl just laid eggs

This is my first batch from my pretty little gfp. She laid them we believe on the 13th. Since this is her first batch and I have no idea if any of them actually turn out or not I figured I'd post updates every few days and let others watch with me as they progress.

What is the material that the eggs were laid on?

They were laid around the tank, I transferred them into a tulle net that's sitting at the top of the tank.

Thank you! Though I'm not sure if anything will come of them, I'm hoping I can get a couple cuties!

Day 3/4 I think. Some of the eggs are taking on an oblong shape now. Not super noticeable but it seems like they're developing.

Watch carefully - they go from squished ball to kidney bean to crescent in a matter of days!

I checked on my kiddos this morning and mostly all seem to have began to bean. Funny what 12 hours can do! I'm happy to know my sweet girl produces good eggs.

Day 5 roughly. Sorry about the dirty looking stuff, I found more eggs on the bottom of the tank and saved them from being munched on.

Thanks :) I was shocked to see the turn out honestly, not that I'm complaining. No need to be jealous tho! I'm the one that is going to have to deal with raising babies and keeping them fed so just think of it that way hah.

Day 6ish. The ever patient willowcat has kindly offered to take the majority of my eggs off my hands in trade for some juvies but I'm keeping a few eggs and will continue to post for them once I have shipped the others out.

Here's hoping there's no sudden crashes! I already have my kids pulled out into another tank ready for their hatching and ship out the others on monday. Once the babies are hatched Ill still post updates though maybe not as frequently. There's this odd colored one amongst the rest that I thought was a dud but seems to be growing like the rest so I'm really interested in how its going to turn out.

Sorry for the less than desirable quality. I'm going to take pictures of the ones in my tank set up for them now. I keep getting distracted by them and watching them twitch and wiggle, it's so precious.
