Howdy, me again,
My babies have begun to vanish on me. All but three have left momma's back and dissapeared into the substrate and rocks in the tank, are they preparing to molt?? When the last three have climbed down can I remove mom? Thanks!

Sure, when the babies leave the mother, you should take them away from her with a spoon in separate enclosures if it is not too may...

The mother will probably have some moults on her back from them already.

If they vanished they probably already molted. Give them a day or two so that they're more likely to be hard enough to fluoresce, then (gently) examine the tank with a blacklight.

Well, remove mom first so there's no pinchy bodyguard. Razz Then pick out the babies either for a baby-specific enclosure or individual housing.
