We never thought it was a successful breeding!! Last October, she cohabitated with a male until cannibalizing him after abot 3-4 weeks. Since then, she has been totally normal. The male never really seemed to know what to do or why he was there so we just kind of figured nothing happened. Well, we have been suspicious for a few weeks now that she may be gravid. Today, we caught her laying eggs!! Lets just hope she is a good mommy and doesn't eat them!!! We are so happy!! Her eggsack is kind of small. Does anyone know if they are known to lay multiple sacks?? She was very fat just this morning. I wish we could post some pics, but she is in a spot that is almost impossible to see.



WOO-HOOOOOO!

wow, that is awesome. Mine don't mate either when I put them together, and I've been considering co-habitation. Can you tell me the size of the enclosure you used for them?
He doesn't seem to have a clue either!
Good luck with the sac!

Here is a pic of the set-up just before we released the male. We had them in a 10 gallon tank and they did well together until he aparently figured out what to do. We left his "jar" in there for the first few weeks so that he would have his own space, but he never used it. Here is a link to some other pics of the cohabitation that I already posted as well.

There's always space for just one more.............then if there isn't you'll start looking for a place to make room for a shelving unit. My printer and its table are starting to look pretty useless these days.:D

Congratulations, GBB's are supposed to be extremely difficult to breed. Hope your mum takes care of her eggs and manages to raise them successfully.
