Default Cynops cyanurus question

Just finally got mine laying a couple eggs, do the young of this species have an eft stage or tend to stay aquatic into adulthood?

Default Re: Cynops cyanurus question

They tend to stay aquatic, no eft stage. However, there is some variability among the different lineages that get called cyanurus, so watch their behavior and adjust accordingly.
