Mr. & Mrs. Salamander log

8/30/11: Added male to the tank, and female in her jar, inside of the tank.

They're going nuts for each other, flaring away. She's very eggy and showing her ovipositor for him. She's head down, and at times I see the hint of bars. He is flaring away and trying desperately to get to her. There is the beginnings of a nest in a few spots, but they're only a few bubbles so far.

I plan to release her tonight right before bed, when the room is the darkest so they can smell, but not see each other.

I really hope they spawn quickly, this will be both their first times.

I have pics, just gotta get them uploaded! The male is just beautiful.

I released her tonight, and had to mess up the beginnings of a promising looking nest in the process :( I need to invest in a hurricane globe - like that'll be hard to find here lol.

I appreciated y'all faith in me! This is my 4th attempt, only one successful so far. So I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high.

There seems to be no damage so far, but I have the room dark. He's kind of hovering at the top, she's right below him at the bottom of the tank.

Finger crossed!

There's a nest site, small but it's there. She's very subbmissive and still eggy - no embracing yet. He sure likes to chase and nip at her ..

SUCCESS! They spawned while we were napping this afternoon! Mom has a few missing scales on her head, and a rip in a few fins, but really not that bad!

Daddy's nest was right over java moss, so there were a bunch of eggs he didnt' see. I think they must have just finished embracing. Wish I was there to see it. He's picking them up now, since I moved the moss gently out of the way. Now we just wait 2 days!
