Default Re: Marmoratus morphs: terrestrial or aquatic?

Technically its impossible for these species to be raised under aquatic conditions. Juvenils have a strict terrestrial phase comparable to N.v.viridiscens eft phase. But after many captive and inbreeding generations there are a few people claiming to be possible to rear them in water. I cant prove it myself but I know this is a way too hydrophobic species before sexual maturity. Still I dont know the origin of your individuals. If they're F1 or F2 they shall behave hydrophobic and have severe healthy problems when introduced to water with huge risk of drowning. But the marms in the USA I believe their really inbreed and geneticly corrupted so there might be a bigger chance for the aquatic raising procedures.
Hope it helps,
Cheers
