Hopefully someone can tell me I'm not going mad.

I've been removing the eggs from my P Schultei since I got them at Christmas, they seem to be paired permanently, so I have lots of eggs, which I was just about to start shifting on so I'm not overrun.

None of the eggs have hatched yet, which is fine, but I noticed last night I have two tiny nymphs in the tank!

There are eggs in the tank which have been laid since the last clean a few days ago, but the only explanation I can think of for the nymphs is that I missed a couple of eggs in the cage furniture - I put some bark pieces back in after each clean, but the subtstrate has been swapped out entirely.

There's no other way this could have happened, is there?!

Cheers.

no Ned I doubt your going mad!! :wink:
But, from past experience the eggs I know will take 4-6 months to hatch so its just right for in your time line
so I would expect the eggs to have gotten lost or some what hidden.
if it works leaving them it the cage then I would suggest keeping them there if its possable :hmm:

Thanks Swarm, I couldn't think of any other way for it to happen, but I wanted a second opnion!

I've put some of the other eggs back in the tank to hatch out - I'm trying to watch the numbers though, I've got about 100 eggs now!

Luckily there's time in between each 'batch' of eggs so they're not all due out at once, it's been a rolling process of pulling them out, then waiting for the next lot.

No problem Ned, Just watch the little guys don't get over-crowded else they will start eating each other!!

Theres no reason why not to sell them tho. maybe there could be profit in them??

hope everything works out for you.

Cheers.
