I came home the other day to find my gravid female (which was purchased gravid) had given birth to 18 beautiful babies. 2 have died and 1 seems pretty ill. I don't know if i am the only one but I am so nervous about raising these babies. I don't know if they are eating or receiving exactly what they need.....and the more i look around for proper information all i seem to get is 'throw them all in a tank together and overflow them with ff's and pinheads'....ahhh, but how do you know that they are eating?? sorry everyone, just expressing the frustration that comes along with caring about these beautiful creatures.
