I've merged both your posts about your success together so all the information is more easily found.
Many congratulations and hoping these eggs are fertile
Thank you ??!


I have been speaking with people on facebook just thought I would post it here because on facebook you have to read things from present to past on the timeline. The eggs seem to be good, there were a lot that came out ruptured or deformed possibly because it is the first time laying. I have the eggs set up in a bunch of different ways based on articles I have read on here by a number of people (mostly those mentioned). Also in different rooms of my house as not to put all theoretical and figurative eggs in one basket.

Here are some clearer pics! You can see some of the eggs developing, almost all of them were laid on land on or under the moss that is by the water.

Saw the male dropping spermatores today as well as a bit of courtship. They courted at the waters edge where the water is maybe a cm deep, it was interesting. The male also dropped the spermatores in the shallow water so they stick out like icicles. The temperature was about 15 degrees (it's cold here, -9 outside)

Apologies, I have been busy adulting. The larvae have been doing well. The oldest are about 1.4 to 2 months old here are some pics of their progress.

The first couple pics are from the first few weeks up until this week.

Pics didn't post lol, but I will add some more from this week. The first of the bunch hatched around march 15-16, so they are almost 2 months old. They have really started to darken up the last week or so.

Excellent Steve sorry I haven't been on Facebook ,your doing an excellent job with them. I'm away with work if you want to PM me on here anytime that's cool. My yangi larvae where incredibly aggressive .Try and morph them as big as possible but they will leave the water at 4-6CM, 6-7CM is best they are like raising Shanjing from there on in. I had excellent advise from Jari B with his experiences with the Shanjing

Thanks dude! No worries I remember you telling me you would be away for a couple weeks, how are your travels?

I have been trying to encourage them to grow and stay in the water by keeping it deep. Some are jus starting to show some color, the biggest are probably around 4-5 cm right now so hopefully they continue to grow. I think they grow a lot faster as larvae anyways.

I like to post here because it does a better job documenting, on Facebook as people post everything is lost so it is hard to reference anything. I feed them black worms and brine shrimp adults form the store on occasion.

As each day passes now there seem to be more noticible changes (in the bigger ones at least). The orange seems to be coming in, I am curious how they will look by the end of the week.

This is the best ever newt and salamander resource. Good job mate

I agree! It is unfortunate Facebook does not do as good a job documenting everything/loses it as new content is posted. With all the Facebook groups a lot of information is posted there now/probably part of the reason the traffic on this site has slowed. I still like to post here for that reason, easier for myself and others to reference if needed.

I think we are getting close! I separated a few of the bigger larvae because they still had some smaller siblings in with them and as the others grow are looking more snack-sized. Most of them are around 2.5-3 inches, the smaller ones being around 2. Adult coloration is coming in full force on some of them, hoping they will stay in the water a little longer but they are a good size if they start to morph.
