So I have a female that has laid a few eggs and one of them finally hatched! The first cluster I ended up taking out to try to have them hatch somewhere else and it wasn't moist enough so when I saw the other big cluster I decided to leave it alone and tonight they hatched!!!
I know only maybe a few of them will survive, but I'm planing on moving all the adults over to my other tank that doesn't have any assassins in it.

Has anyone ever had babies before? What do I need to do? How long does it take for them to grow up?

And if most of them live I would be willing to ship them out!!!

Ok. Thank you!
Currently they are 1-2 maybe 3 months old(I can look up te exact age of them tomorrow.) and the biggest ones are about the size of your thumb.

Also, be aware of two things:

1) They tend to like to float, so don't think they're dead if they are floating!

2) At one point if you want to have more live you will have to separate the biggest ones from the others, otherwise the littler ones won't get food. My sister has about 6-7 that she had to separate from like, 20-30.
