    Because the egg was laid in the water... i think that’s the reason. But I have another female which has an egg so maybe this is the next chance

    Right that's probably why. You'll get one sooner or later to hatch [emoji846] good luck

    What method have you been using? I have eggs right now that should be hatching anyday now. I made a homemade incubator. It's working okay.

    I’m using a normal incubator.
    Temperature between 27-29C.
    Humidity 70-90%.
    Which conditions do you have?

    Yes maybe the substrate is the problem. I’m using fine vermiculite
