Congrats! You can feed a lot of vegetables I like spinach and roman lettuce, you can tie them to a rock or lightly blanch them in the microwave to make them sink. Or just stab whatever vegie with a steel fork and drop it in the tank and fish it out later. I've got a colony running they're pretty low maintenance and eat any thing I throw at them, just make sure you have proper aeration and circulation and you're good to go!

I have given her Spirulina but she dosent seem to be eating it....
Also I can see the babies EYES so how much long should I expect until the day eggs hatch??
😆Just to be sure I don't miss it....

Maybe try something else, fishfood also works for them. To be honest I don't know how long they take to hatch, but I bet you're very close.

And how should I prepare for the babies maintainence??
I honestly didn't do anything extra for them, just provide an abundance of hiding spots and good water circulation. You obviously need to feed more now you have more of them
