I would really appreciate any tips on incubating Leachianus eggs. I have had multiple clutches in the past 7 months, some of which I have confirmed were fertile. I have tried incubating directly on perlite, suspended above perlite, directly in vermiculite and my latest clutch is suspended above plain water in a barely ventillated container. In all cases they have been in a ReptiPro 6000 at about 75 degree. If not directly on a substrate they start denting. Eventually they yellow out and die but this usually takes 6 or more weeks.
Thanks
Grady
