Welcome to Cyphos.com raz7au

As Darren said there are quite few members here that have Moba. I myself have been lucky enough to have breed them succesfully , and if you do a search the breeding section of this forum you will see other members that have been succesfull .The Zaire variants seem to be alittle harder to breed as they haven't been holding their clutches of eggs full term and usually end up spitting or swallowing the eggs .Some of the members with Moba have been stripping the females of their eggs and tumbling them in egg tumblers .

There is tons of great information throughout the forum if you need to find something do a search , and if you can't find anything to help answer your questions you can always post them in the appropraite section of the forum
