Anyone else seen this sort of thing?

I swapped the substrate I was using for my Peruphasma Schultei from Soil/Leaf Litter mix to Sand so that it would be easier to spot and remove eggs. Sand was thoroughly sterlised.

Egg laying seemed to stop immediately, although at this point I only had the one female, she did still seem swollen with eggs and was still being mated constantly.

This was a few months ago now, and the female has since died - she looked much slimmer and less fertile when she died, and she had a decent life span.

Really seems like the substrate change trigged the halt in egg laying, but there was cork bark in the tank which they'd used for laying before. I'm a bit baffled!
