Does the bn just stop breeding at some point or do the clutch sizes slowly decrease and at what age would you say a bn is in its prime so to speak ?

In my experience they are in their prime as soon as they start breeding around 12 months. they do seem to go dry so to speak, it seems to be when they are a few years old.

They are probably just too worn out by then. I wouldn't suspect they'd get a chance to breed as much in the wild as they are allowed in they aquarium hey?
