Spawning timeframe?

Postby llllamal » Mon Feb 20, 2012 10:40 am

I arrived home with my new red-eyes to find that one of the males had taken a great liking to one of the girls (who appears to be heavy with eggs).
While they have moved around the enclosure they are still a "unit". They spent all night on the water's edge but there is still no sign of spawn. 30 hours later, they have now moved to the substrate.
How long does the process usually take?
What can I do to stimulate them further?

Yeah, i would also leave them alone, the only time i would seemingly bother them is by turning the light on in the morning and the light off at night, other than that, leave them be, also this probably wont be the only time this will happen, you have plenty more oppotunities at this so if the froggies stuff up the first time, they will probably learn from than, is the pool of water in the tank deep?

Thanks for the responses.
The water is about ten centimetres deep. Has a rock and a slow filter in it for water circulation.
I thought the breeding season was almost over.
