Talking OMG I've got babies!

They're starting to hatch How soon do I start putting in vinegar eels? I ask because they are like super super super tiny (the babies) practically microscopic. They're are also some of the small worms from me feeding the adults live foods and they're chasing them already. I don't want to soil the water by feeding them too soon or too much, I'm so nervous! Gah! My first spawn >.< Mommy is in her own seperated small tank for recovery and daddy is still in the tank. He's not eating them so I figured it's fine to leave him in there and they're not all hatched yet anyway, like I said, they just started hatching...Any advice or ideas that I might not have thought of to make things go as smoothly as possible is very much so welcome, thank you all in advance

When you noticed most of them started darting around, it's feeding time.

congrats. At first they'll eat their eggsacs for a bit but then after they finish you'll need to take the dad out and feed them some other food.

They eat they're egg sacks???? I've never seen that but then again the eggs turn clear just before hatching. But as soon as they start to swim they need food and dad needs to come out.

dad needs to come out because he will think of them as food right?

Yes or he'll be over protective and kill them trying to keep them in the nest.

Ya they feed off that after hatching and then they use it up once they become free swimming.
