Advertisement Got a few questions on my newborn Emps. Should I feed the mother while the babies are still on her back? -I didnt want her to be hungry and end up munching on a newborn, but I also didnt want to stress her out with a bunch of rowdy crickets thus causing her to munch on newborns. Once I found out I had newborns I set up a new tank to relocate my male emp. I was planning on reuniting the male and female(after the she has had a nice big meal ) after my newborns ventured off their mothers back. I know some people put them in seperate delicups but i had planned to use that extra tank ( 10 gallon) as a nursery tank just for the youngins. Would this be a good idea? Should I use my red50watt bulb to heat the newborns as I heard they can easily get dehydrated?
