After 5 years, I just got eggs this year. I started out with 0.0.2 and as they grew I could see they were females. 3 years ago I got 0.0.3 and as they grew I could see that my colony was 1.4. I bought two surplus males and they started breeding activity. One day a few weeks ago the oyster substrate that I use had craters in it. I put in a nesting box and soon found one egg in there, but another was laid on the surface, under hide box. I set up the eggs in pretty dry vermiculite and incubated them at 85 degrees and today one had hatched! I'm pumped.
