Well they can be very cannabalistic, so separating them would be a good idea anyway...my female killed and ate the male after they bred :(

But yeah expect eggs in like two weeks, if they turn dark brown they’re fertile. And then just keep watching and a few weeks later you’ll notice the eggs are no longer eggs and now have legs and antennae :D They’ll stay attached to the mom for a while, and then eventually they’ll venture away and explore.

they just eat everything like their mom eats, so whatever you’re feeding her you can just put more in for the babies.
