    Breeding:  
    Incubation: One technique described: remove the eggs and put them in a small, closed container on top of damp peat. That way you can check on the development of the eggs. When the eggs are developed, put the eggs in a vial of peat extract (with a little peat too) and put that vial into a deep aquarium. The pressure at the bottom of the 55 gallon tank, forces the eggs to hatch in about 2 hours.
    Egg Diameter: 1.7 - 1.8 mm
