I’ve been willing my Tylototriton shanjing or light variant verrucosus or whatever they are to lay eggs for weeks now. I’ve been looking daily on the land area with no luck. Needless to say I’ve now found eggs littered all over the tank in the water, on the glass,filter, aquatic moss, (everywhere except, where I wanted them to be for collecting) I have fished out around 35 as they are near impossible to reach. I believe they have been laying today.
I’ll be posting some more details in the next few days ,
I’m very happy now 3 species of 5 I’ve had ambitions to breed ,more pictures to follow

yes I do they bred again this year
Sweet, keep me posted. I'm trying to secure individuals from different lines for a future breeding project. I pay premium. I will have bumble bee toads in the next 30 days if you are interested in trading as well. I've talked to a few folks and they have either flaked or aren't that interested in moving juveniles.

If you ever consider selling your adults I'd be interested as well.

    It’s very dry in Colorado. I make sure to spritz every night so while I’m sleeping. I have a nifty hydrometer that I got from Walmart. It tells me blue, green, red; too little humid, good, too much respectively. It’s been helpful to me.
