Milo,

Could you describe your setup? I am particularly interested in what kind of heat gradient you provided your gravid female and how hot it was in that area.

The reason I am curious is that I have bred Charina several times and have always had high frequencies of stillbirths. Richard Hoyer suggested to me that it may be that my female was basking too much on the heat tape and the offspring were using up the nutrients in the yolk sac before they were born.
