    I found that Jet laid eggs. Unfortunatly they are small eggs. She is not eating so I dont know how long she has left. She started pulling a smal rock and her collection of suction cups around the den so that was my first clue. It will be hard to tell if they are fertile or not as they are very small and she is usually blocking them. I'll keep you updated on what happens next.

    You've only had her a couple (5-6?) of weeks right? So sorry you had such a short time with her...

    Yes I have only had her for a short time. I knew when I got her it might not be long becuase I didn't know what species it was. They had it labaled as a vulgaris, but then they said it wouldn't get too big and it could be kept in a 10 gallon :hmm:. So they had no idea what species it was.

    I'm really sorry. Maybe you'll be able to raise some of the eggs.
