Cool, Cheyenne. Did a pairing of castanecieps last night and had similar success.

Never saw this before & was wondering if you had the same experience:

after the fickle female would walk away from the males terminal twitching, he would walk backwards rapidly and wrap her up with terminals, dragging her back to where he apparently wanted her. Made me nervous the 1st time, spray bottle in hand, but she finally got tired of it & just gave in to his advances. Tug 'o war!

Good luck!

Amazing! Hope they produce some babies for you. My favorite of the North Americans.
