Back in the late 1960's I had a pair of tank variety walkeri (orange-now).
Could not get an egg. Put the bare 2 gal glass bottomed tank aside(in a
dark area) with the pair and just tossed in a clump of white worms whenever
I remembered they were there in the dark. After about 7 or 8 weeks(if I
remember correctly), I thought of them and went to clean the now disgusting
tank. Bottom was solid eggs. I put the pair in a clean enviroment and the
eggs in clean tank water and after a few weeks I had a ton of them. Didn't
know they liked a dry period back then. Apparently neither did they. I
didnt leave the eggs in the tank but they were on the dirty bottom of a
bare tank and I moved them to a more lighted area in cleaner water. Pleased
with the pair, I started treating them well and never saw another egg.
I always raise gardneri, and puerzli by UG filter in gravel till hatching
time method. Gives a big hatch all at once.
