    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?

    no need to throw "a bunch" of crickets in there when one is enough

    as for the setup for all the lil ones
    you probably don't even need to heat them if the room is warm enough
